Students may take classes at UC without being enrolled in a UC degree program. Their official status is "non-matriculated," which is a traditional academic term meaning "not enrolled in a degree program."
Completing the Basic Data Form is the first step to registering for classes. The Basic Data Form enables the UC Registrar to update or create your student record. After submitting the Basic Data Form, it will take a day or two to enter all the information into our student database. Then you will be able to register for classes.

All UC students are entitled to certain benefits and services. They also have certain responsibilities. Since students who are not enrolled in degree programs do not go through formal orientation, please be sure to read all of the following information.
All UC students must use their UConnect account. A UConnect e-mail account is provided to all University of Cincinnati students and will be used for all official university communications, including, but not limited to:
Go to email.uc.edu to activate your account.
The One Stop Student Service enables you to take care of business online or in person without having to run all over campus. You can register for classes, accept your financial aid award, pay your bill, check your grades, request a transcript and more.
Courses at UC use Blackboard, an online system that allows instructors to place course syllabi and instructional materials online. It also contains communication tools, such as online discussion boards, where students collaborate, post assignments and get updates from professors. Blackboard also serves as a portal to other Web services at UC.
Once you are officially a student and have registered for courses, you will have a Blackboard account created for you automatically.
All UC students are required to have a UC photo ID. A valid student ID is required to use libraries, computer labs, sport and recreation facilities and campus dining centers. The UC ID also serves as the Bearcat Campus Card, a debit card that can be used in all campus vending machines, shops and the UC Bookstore. More information about the Bearcat Campus Card.
To get an ID:
Eligible students are billed automatically for single coverage unless insurance is waived or dependent coverage is requested.
Students with private insurance who wish to be excluded from the Student Insurance Plan must submit an Insurance Action Form no later than the third Friday deadline of the term. To waive your health insurance go to the One Stop Web site.
International students are not eligible to waive coverage and are required to be covered under the University Student Insurance Plan.
Students whose classes have been canceled should contact the Student Insurance Office for confirmation of waiver or enrollment.
Students who purchase spring semester Student Health Insurance are automatically covered through summer semester with no additional premium due.
For more information, contact University Health Services.
The UC Bookstores offer all required and recommended textbooks and course packs. Students who want to purchase used books should shop early because used books, which retail at 25% less than the retail price of new books, sell out quickly. You can check for textbooks online or call the bookstore at 513-556-1400.
Students may purchase permits to park on campus. For more information, contact UC Parking Services.
