Maximize your benefits
From federal tuition assistance to the Montgomery GI Bill and Post 9/11 GI Bill, there are many ways for active-duty service members and veterans to get financial support to help pay for a University of Cincinnati degree. Our Veterans Programs & Services office will help you understand the military and veteran funding available to you.
Maximize your experience
Military service provides a wealth of experience that is highly valued by employers. It can also be very valuable in reducing the costs and credits needed to earn your college degree!
The University of Cincinnati will accept and award college credit for your military training and experience in the U.S. Armed Forces or National Guard as long as it has been approved by the American Council on Education or a regional accrediting body. Military credit, as reported on a military transcript, is accepted at UC.
If you have earned military credit, you should contact the appropriate registry to have your official transcripts sent to the University of Cincinnati.
Once your military courses are evaluated, we will send you a Credit Evaluation Report showing the equivalent courses and credit hours that transfer to UC. Decisions about how your credits apply to specific academic programs are made by the college or department that offers your major.
Courses provided by University of Cincinnati Online are offered in an asynchronous format. In other words, they are self-paced. So you don’t have to worry about calibrating time zones to make your lecture. Deciding to pursue, or complete, a degree is an investment. Our goal is to make it achievable.
If you are active-duty and being deployed during enrollment or returning from an active military deployment, our team can provide key direction to make these transitions as seamless as possible.
The University of Cincinnati is committed to providing equal access to students with disabilities. We are actively engaged in improving accessibility in the classroom and online.

The ability to take semesters off varies based on whether you are an undergraduate or a graduate student.
– You must take at least 1 credit hour in any 3 consecutive semesters to maintain active undergraduate student status.
– You must take at least 1 credit hour in a given academic year to maintain active graduate student status.
– Always check with your Student Success Coordinator or Academic Advisor prior to taking any semesters off as there could be nuances that are specific to your degree program.
Yes. The vast majority of our students work throughout their time in their academic program. It is important to assess course load and financial aid to understand how to balance school and working.
If possible, students may cut down on their work hours during a clinical portion of a program.
