The Medical Coder Certificate program is open to all students with a high school diploma/GED and the desire to succeed. The program accepts students six times a year. Financial grants (up to $2,000 per student) are available for those that qualify. Grant funds are also available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Applications are accepted continuously throughout the year.
To be considered “official,” transcripts must be sent to UC directly from any previously attended institutions. Most high schools and colleges use either Parchment or National Student Clearinghouse. Search for your previously attended institution(s) on these sites to see if you can order your transcripts electronically.
In Parchment, select “University of Cincinnati – Main Campus” as the transcript recipient. In National Student Clearinghouse, you can request the transcripts be sent directly to admissions ([email protected]). If you don’t see your school(s) listed on either of these sites, contact the school(s) directly.
