This program is open to all students with a high school diploma or GED and the desire to succeed in college. Although admission is open, students accepted into the program must meet the academic standards of the program to advance to upper levels of study. You may enroll in UCBA if you graduated from an accredited high school or preparatory school or have a GED certificate (minimum composite score of 45). The college's rolling admissions policy allows you to start any semester: fall, spring, or summer. Many Applied Graphic Communication courses are sequential, however, and are offered only one term per academic year. Entering during spring or summer semester may extend the length of the program.
To proceed to the second year of the program, students must participate in, and pass, a mid-program portfolio review at the end of their first year. Below you can learn more about the process of being admitted to the second year of the Applied Graphic Communication at UC Blue Ash.
