Students First
Affordability Lives Here

The University of Cincinnati puts students first. We have frozen undergraduate tuition for four consecutive years. Our graduate school tuition, except for Medicine and Pharmacy, also remains flat for the fourth straight year. We place a premium on affordability, access and accountability and are committed to listening to the interests and needs of students and their families.

We want to hear from students & their families.

Please provide written narrative or upload a video on how important college affordability is to you so we can share it.


A Message from President Pinto


I am delighted to inform you that the Board of Trustees recently approved my recommendation to freeze undergraduate tuition for the 2018-19 academic year.

UC is the only public university in the State of Ohio to approve, by way of board action, a motion not to raise undergraduate tuition on its students and parents next year. We believe this uncommon decision to keep tuition flat is yet another proof point that the value of a UC education ranks second to none.

It is worth recognizing and repeating that UC has made access and affordability an uncompromising priority. In fact, our students who enrolled in Fall 2015 will graduate next spring without ever experiencing a tuition increase during their entire collegiate careers at UC.

If you agree with us that keeping costs down for students and parents must be an essential priority for higher education, then I encourage you to share UC’s commitment to access, affordability and accountability with your family, friends and networks.

In fact, I hope you will go one step further and tell us why freezing tuition matters to you and your family.

Please know that hearing your voice on this issue will be critical as we continue to advocate for access and affordability on your behalf.

Thank you for your support.

Best Regards,

Neville Pinto
