The first step to becoming a UC Blue Ash College student is to complete an online application. In addition to completing the online application, you will need to pay the $50 application fee and submit transcripts. If you haven't already, be sure to review the full steps for admission. This includes deadlines and the all steps that need to be completed so you can register and attend classes.

After Completing an Application
Pay $50 Application Fee
After completing an application, you will need to pay a $50 application fee. This is unless you attend one of our Open Houses or Express Application Events, where you can apply for free in person on our campus. Payments are made in the same application tool used to submit your application.
Send Your Transcripts
Applicants, if you are a high school student, you must ask your guidance counselor to send us your transcript. If you are transferring from another college or university, you must request a transcript from each institution where you have completed college coursework.
Send all official*, sealed transcripts directly to:
University of Cincinnati | Office of Admissions
PO Box 210091 | Cincinnati, OH 45221-0091
*Official transcripts must be sent directly from the school in a sealed envelope.
Send final transcripts. If you are a graduating high school student, you will need to send a final High School transcript after graduation (before July for Fall start). This final transcript is required for financial aid. Transcripts must be received prior to the application deadline for the term you are preparing to start in.
Allow Time For Review & Check Your Status
Please allow two to three weeks for your application to be reviewed after all documents have been received. Notification of admission decisions will be sent by email.
Immediately after completing an online application, paying your fee (unless waived), and submitting transcripts, you should complete the following in order to set yourself up for success.
Submit ACT scores
ACT/SAT scores will be waived as a requirement for all new applicants through the fall 2022 semester.
However, keep in mind that the submission of your ACT/SAT scores can reduce or even eliminate the need for you to take placement tests, and will still be required if you wish to be considered for the UC Blue Ash Honors program.
Qualifying ACT scores can be used in place of placement tests to determine what math and English courses students can start in at UC Blue Ash College.
If you intend to submit ACT scores, you should do so as soon as possible so that you can be sure if you will need to complete any placement tests.
Apply for Financial Aid
We recommend starting your financial aid process as early as possible if you will be seeking assistance.
- Apply for free at the federal FAFSA website and use the UC/UCBA Code: 003125
- Start early for best results. The form is available annually beginning in October.
