Comeback Bearcat

Your Time Is Now!

It is time to finish what you started! We know that earning a college degree is key to increasing employment opportunities and earnings, as well as achieving personal fulfillment.

Comeback Bearcat

We recognize that many students who stop out of college encounter obstacles that make it difficult to return to school. Our dedicated staff members are here to help. We can remove issues related to re-enrollment and direct you towards the appropriate support services - including financial aid, academic support, advising, and so much more.

If you have already earned at least 30 hours of college credits, the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College welcomes you back to complete your degree! You may be eligible for a scholarship of up to $500 per semester and will be able to apply the credits you have earned towards finishing your college degree.

Student must meet ALL of the following requirements.

  • Students who were enrolled at any UC college but stopped out before earning an associate degree
  • Students who have less than 30 credit hours left to complete their associate degree, and who maintained a GPA of 2.0 or higher
  • Students must file a FAFSA for the semester in which they intend to return (our school code is 003125)
  • Students must submit a readmissions application

The goal of the Comeback Bearcat program is to recruit, retain, and graduate students who have previously stopped out of the University of Cincinnati before completing their undergraduate program.
