Transitions 2021 cohort at the Inaugural Early Arrival Program

Transitions Program

Transitions is a program designed to enhance the first-year experience for incoming Black students by providing leadership training, workshops, peer mentoring, and other social and academic activities to ensure that all participants are prepared for college and beyond. In addition, accepted students will have the opportunity to move in early to enable them to attend the required early arrival program. 

Graduates of the program have gone on to become elected members of Student Government and have also obtained membership and been leaders in a myriad of organizations from fraternities and sororities to Resident Assistants (RAs), Student Orientation Leaders (SOLs), and BASE Mentors...all while maintaining a standard of excellence in the classroom. Transitions is the premier program of the AACRC. Participation in it will undoubtedly help you begin a successful academic career here at the University of Cincinnati. Apply online today!
