Financial Aid

UC Costs 2021-22

Tuition amounts are set by the university, though college, program level (undergraduate, graduate or professional), or the course of study itself may involve specialized fees. In addition to the overview below, it may be helpful to view Bursar Website to view details on your program and be aware of any college-specific fees.

Year amounts shown would be the typical fall + spring semesters as summer is generally optional. Full-time enrollment year-round would be 3x term rate or year + term rate.

NOTE: Year-round enrollment may require changes in loan processing.

These charts with information from your Financial Aid Award (including adjustments for part-time or co-op enrollments) can help you in planning for out-of-pocket expenses related to your bill.


2021-22 Tuition Overview

Tuition is the combined amount for instructional, general, technology, and campus life or distance learning fees as well as appropriate non-resident surcharges.

Undergraduate tuition is determined by your college program location and cohort groups based on your academic year of admission. Cohort groups relate to the Cincinnati Tuition Guarantee that locks in your rate for the length of your program.

Along with the overviews below, more details on specific fees for your programspecial course fees, and distance learning program fees are also available via the Bursar Website.

This detail of fees does not replace your individual bill determined each term by your course registration.

Cost of Attending UC

The cost of attending UC consists of direct and indirect costs. Direct costs on your semester bill are tuition (instructional, general, technology, campus life, and program fees), room and board (for students residing on campus), and health insurance (if minimum insurance coverage is not documented). Attending college also includes indirect costs. Items such as books and supplies, transportation and parking, personal expenses, and off-campus rent are part of your budget though they will not be billed by the university.

In addition to the direct fees detailed above, we recommend you budget approximately $1,200 for books and supplies, $500 to $725 for transportation, and between $2,600 and $4,800 for personal expenses per academic year. Ranges reflect issues such as if you live on-campus or commute, living with parents or on your own, and are co-oping or not. Your overall cost of attendance budget essentially covers costs of tuition through toothpaste. The total amount we budget for a typical on-campus, full-time undergraduate, Ohio resident for the basic 2-semester academic year on Uptown Campus is $28,902.

Remember that what you actually spend in non-billed expenses may differ from the amounts budgeted by the Student Financial Aid Office. You should plan your finances to meet your expenses. 


New Students

While not providing an exact picture of financial aid, the federally required Net Price Calculator can give new undergraduate students an idea of Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loan eligibility prior to an award being made.

At the same time, eligibility for complete aid packages can only be determined following an offer of admission to the university and completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA should be completed as soon after October 1 as possible each year in order to be considered for maximum aid eligibility for limited funding sources. Applications received by December 1 receive priority consideration.
