Of the total 22,232 first-year applications received to date, nearly 18,000 were made for admission to UC’s Uptown Campus by the December 1 Early Action Deadline. It is those students who are receiving their admission decisions today.
Of those nearly 18,000 students:
- Overall, they represent a 3.7 percent increase in Uptown applications over last year.
- The current pool of Uptown applicants is more diverse, with a 6.7 percent increase in African American undergraduate applicants and a 12.4 percent increase in Hispanic applicants.
- UC currently has an 8.8 percent increase in out-of-state Uptown applications, with the furthest coming from Honolulu, Hawaii. Outside of the Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky area, the top four home states for those applying to UC undergraduate programs are Illinois, Michigan, California and Pennsylvania.
- International undergraduate applications are up 38 percent. The furthest international undergraduate applicant comes from Guam, 7,612 miles from UC. The top three countries for UC undergraduate applicants are India, China and Vietnam.
(Important note: The above application and admission acceptance figures do not include UC’s top-ranked College Conservatory of Music and College of Nursing. These two colleges are on different admissions cycles.)
Even with Uptown admissions decisions going out today for many undergraduate applicants, opportunities for admission – with acceptances on a rolling basis – are still available in select Uptown programs until March 1. In addition, UC’s regional campuses – UC Blue Ash College and Clermont College – accept applications on a rolling basis until July 1.
It won’t be until the end of August that the final size and characteristics of UC’s incoming class are finalized and known; however, UC has already enjoyed six straight years of rising enrollment.
