Will you make the cut?

Transitions is a first-year experience program that uses a "Rites of Passage" curriculum to bring a higher retention and graduation rate for African American students at the University of Cincinnati. The program assists students with their adjustment to college and provides workshops, peer-mentoring, and other social and academic activities to ensure that all participants are successful. Transitions students are connected to faculty, staff, returning students and other members of the university family.

The staff and past graduates of the program consider Transitions to be an important and essential first step on the ladder to success — and graduation. If you are interested in applying for membership into the Transitions program, please complete the Transitions Application.

Congratulations to our 2015-2016 Transitions Students of the Year, Jody Jones and Lauren White.
