Admission into the University of Cincinnati’s online Applied Business in Information Technology associate degree 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 are currently a high school senior or have a high school diploma, GED or home-school equivalent.
As a first year student, you will need to take an English and mathematics placement test if you have not obtained the minimum ACT/SAT score required for exemption. These tests do not affect your admission; however, the results are essential for your proper placement in classes. You must complete placement tests before you register for English or mathematics courses. All placement tests are given free of charge.
Transferability is based on school accreditation, course/content comparability (including evaluation of practical assignments), year taken, and final grade.
