And while we’re proud to be recognized for our high-quality programs, we know firsthand that success is not just about how you support your rankings — it’s about how you support your people. At UC Online, we consider our students the best of the best, and it’s no wonder why. Every day we’re privileged to watch their drive and innovation overcome inestimable obstacles, uncover new knowledge, and improve communities. But while a Bearcat’s ambition may be boundless, we understand that distance learning can pose unique challenges for those trying to balance school, work, and family obligations — which is why we work hard to ensure you get the most out of each term with us. How? By providing you with a full support team — enrollment services advisors, student success coordinators, and academic advisors — to guide you through the admissions process, assist you with course selection, answer your questions, and keep you on your path toward degree completion. Because here, our goal is simple: make it easy for you to become a University of Cincinnati graduate. Enrollment Services Advisors Without help from an expert, navigating the college enrollment process can feel a bit overwhelming — and at UC Online, we make a point to retain a full staff of enrollment services advisors to serve as your first point of contact with us and answer all of your questions. These specialists will not only guide you through the application process, but will help steer you toward the courses, programs, and opportunities to best serve your personal and professional goals. Advising assistance is available in person, over the phone, or by email — and since all our enrollment services advisors are located on UC’s main campus, you can be confident knowing you’re getting your information from an actual University of Cincinnati employee. Student Success Coordinators Student success coordinators are exactly what they sound like: staff members with the singular purpose of helping you achieve success as a UC Online student. Providing support individually tailored to you, they’ll assist you from the time you confirm your spot in a program, through orientation and up through graduation. This support includes connecting you to key resources, helping you navigate the online study platform, or explaining how to contact your professors in an online environment. And since we never outsource these positions, your assistance will come directly from UC’s main campus — meaning you’ll be supported by someone who personally understands the University of Cincinnati scholarship, culture, and people. Academic Advisors Vital to your academic success, academic advising is a student support system in which your personal advisor will: help you clarify your academic, professional, and personal goals; explain program and university policies; advise on classes and how they fit your goals; counsel you on academic or personal matters; and make sure you stay on track to graduation. Although our UC Online advisors are housed under different colleges and units, they all share a commitment to assist you in reaching your goals, all the way to graduation and beyond. “The enrollment coordinators and academic advisors are amazing. I had my doubts about getting back to being a student after almost a decade, but their guidance and advice made the transition incredibly easy.” — Trupti R. | MS Information Technology The UC Online Difference At the University of Cincinnati Online, our focus is you.
