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. Cincinnati has been recognized as providing students with a strong return on their investment (PolicyMic).
