UC Blue Ash College

Freshman Credit Policy

UC Blue Ash College freshmen are required to complete 24 credits at UC Blue Ash before enrolling in any classes at another UC college. This policy is designed to support our students; we want to be sure that they succeed in their first year of college and take advantage of our exceptional teaching, smaller class sizes, free academic support services, and academic advising. Students receive more detailed information about this policy at orientation and we encourage them to speak to their academic advisor during orientation if they have specific questions about when they can enroll in classes offered at other UC colleges.

To help with understanding of the new policy, we are providing answers to the frequently asked questions.

It is designed to support academic success for new students. Data from Institutional Research shows that students who are admitted to our college, but take at least one-fourth of their classes in UC Uptown, do not perform as well as those who take all of their classes at our college.

Our focus is on exceptional teaching and taking the time to help students who might be struggling with adjusting to a college-level curriculum. We do this through our talented professors, smaller class sizes, free academic support services, and personal attention.

Exceptions to the policy will be considered on an individual basis and may be allowed in certain circumstances. Discuss this with your academic advisor.

You will save money by taking all of your classes at UC Blue Ash in your first year. The tuition rates at UC Blue Ash are about half of those for the UC Uptown campus.
