UC Online Quick Start
Tuition & Financial Support
As a University of Cincinnati Online student, you may be living halfway across the world or halfway across campus. No matter where you live, UC Online is here to help you obtain your degree.
Most of what is done to secure aid as an online student is the same as for traditional students. Your aid eligibility is also very much the same. The one caveat is understanding part-time vs. full-time status because online students are often part-time. Part-time students should be aware of how grants can adjust based on enrollment and how taking annual loan amounts can more quickly get a student to their aggregate loan limit.
The Student Financial Aid Office is here to assist you in planning your academic career and using your available aid to meet your educational goals.
