Special Admissions Circumstances

Home Schooled Students

Students who were home schooled follow the same application process as all other first-year applicants. Home schooled students who meet their state requirements for high school graduation and have taken the SAT or ACT test will be considered for admission based on the same criteria as all other high school graduates.

To be considered, home schooled students must submit, with their application materials:

  • a detailed curriculum, including course content descriptions
  • a copy of the superintendent release form authorizing the home schooling (Ohio students only, as required by the State of Ohio)
  • other documentation upon request


Students with a GED

The University of Cincinnati has two alternatives for students who have earned a GED. Both UC Blue Ash College and UC Clermont College are open admissions colleges where either a high school diploma or GED is accepted.
