Transfer Students

UC Students Walking down Main Street

The transfer admission process is for students who are transferring to UC from another university or college and wish to apply to the University Honors Program. If you are a current UC student enrolled in a baccalaureate program and wish to apply to the University Honors Program you must apply through the transition process.

Applications from students who are transferring to UC are accepted year-round. Transfer students must apply at least one month before they begin courses at the University of Cincinnati. University Honors accepts only one application per candidate each academic year. Applications have now closed for the Fall 2022 term and will reopen Monday, August 29 for Spring 2023 applicants. To be eligible for Spring 2023, you must submit your application by Sunday, December 4.  All decisions will be made after this deadline. 

Eligibility

To be eligible, applicants must have:

  • a minimum cumulative college GPA of 3.2 or above
  • admitted into a baccalaureate program by a college at the University of Cincinnati.
  • not yet started classes at UC

Admission is very competitive and is based on the application, academic accomplishment, and involvement outlined in the resume. Meeting the eligibility is not a guarantee of admission to the University Honors Program.

UC Online students

Currently, the University Honors Program is unable to admit to UC Online students. UC Online programs are completely online programs. If you are unsure if you qualify, please reach out to us before completing the application.
