The required documents for application are noted in the Criteria for Admission. Application to all graduate studies at the University of Cincinnati is fully online. Please go to the Graduate School website to submit your application.
*Make sure you fully fill out the application, and provide the necessary documents to prevent any delays with your application.*
Upload a statement of purpose explaining your interest in online learning, your professional or academic experience that has prepared you for study in the graduate certificate, and any other relevant experience or interests you would like to provide.
The submission should include the applicant’s name; address; phone; email; colleges attended with degrees, dates conferred, and grade point average; employment history; professional experience; present employer; and names of references.
The applicant must include at least one letter of recommendation (preferably from someone who can speak to your academic abilities).
Note: The purpose of the reference letter is to give the committee an additional data point to assess your academic and professional background. Hence, it is highly recommended to include both an academic and professional reference as part of your application. Applicants do not upload the recommendation letters. A note is sent directly to the recommenders from the application system. It is advisable to ask more recommenders than required because applications that do not include at least one reference letter cannot be reviewed by the committee.

(There are a few exceptions to the asynchronous components, please view program FAQs for more information)
We want to help ensure you are prepared by requiring all of our starting students to take a free, non-credit pass/fail orientation before you begin your first course. Orientation runs for two weeks following a weekly schedule modeled on all of our MLS courses. You’ll learn the tools we’ll use in Canvas – which houses our online courses – and the program procedures you’ll need to know to get started.
The University of Cincinnati is one of the first institutions to offer online courses. Innovation in education is at the forefront of what we do. We have expanded the convenience and quality of our online learning to online degree programs. Today, we offer nearly 100 degrees from undergraduate to doctoral programs.
