What is the Visiting Students Program or VSP?
The Visiting Student Program is offered to all interested international students and currently only offered in the Fall Semester. VSP participants pay tuition and fees directly to the University of Cincinnati and can choose from one of five subject areas. UC operates on a semester calendar. There are 15 weeks in one semester, beginning in late August and ending in December. VSP program participants typically earn 3 semester credits or the equivalent of 6 ECTS credits, or roughly 12 credits in the UK and Australian systems.
Students who are interested should meet with their home university’s international office to explore the possibility of applying for this program. If your institution nominates students, please make sure nominations are received before the application deadline. The Fall Semester application deadline is April 15th.
