How we can help
Every transfer student is unique, and enrolling at a new institution can be challenging. That's why we have a dedicated team of academic advisors assigned to help make your transition to University of Cincinnati as seamless as possible. Our transfer advising services include:
- General pre-transfer advising
- Major changing advising
- Help with exploring program options

If you'd like to set up an appointment regarding credit evaluation, please fill out the information request form (if you are a current UC student, please schedule an appointment using Starfish).

Please allow up to one week for an advisor to contact you to set up an appointment.
