Career-Oriented Associate Degrees
Career-oriented programs prepare students for entrance into specific careers after two-years of study. The programs are designed to help you be a successful practitioner after earning your associate degree. These programs don't always align nicely with the bachelor degree programs offered at Clifton; if you intend to eventually pursue a bachelor's degree, all of your credits may not transfer and you may have to take additional coursework.
Transition-Oriented Associate Degrees
These programs provide the first two years of a baccalaureate program and enable students to easily transfer to the Clifton campus in order to earn a bachelor's degree. Hint: Many of the programs are called "Pre-" programs, as they prepare you for transition to other UC college programs.
Additional Degree Options
UC Blue Ash College also offers many other program types such as bachelor's degrees and certificates.
Selective Admission Programs
Several programs at UC Blue Ash are transitioning to Selective Admission. This means you will need to meet minimum criteria and will need to apply specifically to each of these programs. Selective Admission Programs include Dental Hygiene, Nursing, and Radiologic Technology. What should you do in the meantime? Talk to your advisor about the Pre-Health Professions program.
Understanding Financial Aid
Know The Difference
There are many different types of Financial Aid. Financial Aid is a term that includes loans, grants and scholarships. Visit UC Financial Aid headquarters to learn about the different types of aid.
Check Your Status Often

Ask If Unsure
