Planned to go to Uptown but changed your mind?
If you originally confirmed your admission to UC’s Uptown Campus but are now considering a regional campus option, here’s what you’ll need to do!
- Talk with your admissions counselor or academic advisor. In many cases, the move to a regional campus for confirmed Uptown students is pretty easy but we want to make sure you’ve considered factors such as the competitiveness of your admitted program.
- Once you’ve determined this is the best path to take, contact UC Blue Ash, UC Clermont, or Uptown Campus Admissions to officially move your application.
- After this change form is processed, you’ll work with an academic advisor at your new college (UC Blue Ash or UC Clermont) to put together a new schedule of courses that are offered by the new college.
Tuition & Aid
A college education is one of the best investments you can make and we want to help you understand how to make your education as cost-effective as possible. Financial assistance, scholarships, and other ways to offset costs (i.e. co-op earnings) should be considered when deciding where to attend. Learn more about tuition and aid available at UC. >>
Students who were originally enrolled in an Uptown Campus program and who have taken the steps necessary to move to either UC Blue Ash or UC Clermont will see a change in their tuition only after they’ve enrolled in new courses at the regional college of their choice. Here are some important things to note about tuition and fees for regional campus students:
- After a student changes their academic program to one offered by a regional UC college, the Student Life fee will be removed from their tuition bill. However, they will no longer have access to the Campus Rec Center on Uptown Campus without paying a fee.
- First-year students at UC Blue Ash are required to take all their classes at UC Blue Ash until they have earned over 24 college credits at UC. These credits must be earned after high school graduation (CCP and AP credits are not part of this total).
- UC Clermont students are permitted to take up to 6 credit hours of course work each semester at UC’s Uptown Campus and still be billed at the UC Clermont tuition rate. The student must be enrolled as a full-time student to take advantage of this policy. If they register for more than 6 credit hours at UC Uptown, their bill will have additional charges per credit hour for each additional hour enrolled at UC Uptown. These additional credit hours will be billed at the UC Uptown rate.
