What is a transfer student?

A transfer student is a student who seeks to change their university or college to complete their desired degree, or pursue a different degree. Transfer students at UC’s College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) are transferring into the University of Cincinnati system from an outside university. Students transferring into A&S will find guidelines here

What is a transition student?

Students coming to A&S from one of UC’s regional campuses—UC Blue Ash or UC Clermont—or another college within the university, are considered transition. Students coming to UC’s Uptown West campus from regional campuses typically begin their studies at UC Clermont or UC Blue Ash, where they can earn an associate’s degree, and complete their bachelor’s degree at A&S, or another four-year college within the university.

The guidelines for students interested in transitioning to the College of Arts and Science from the UC regional campuses are:

  • 2.0 or higher GPA

  • A minimum of 24 completed credit hours
