College Day 1

What are your next steps to making Cincinnati your new home?

Ice Skating Event

Confirm your Admission by June 1st. It is important to confirm your admission to make sure you secure your spot in the Medical Sciences program. We know a lot has been happening surrounding COVID-19 and as a result of that, we have extended our confirmation deadline. 


Apply for housing. If you are sure you plan to live on campus this fall, we encourage you to submit your housing application as soon as possible. Typically the university evaluates housing capacity in early May at which point we may need to start a waitlist. Please note that students must confirm their admission prior to applying for housing. 


College Day 2

Register for Orientation. As you may know, UC has moved most in-person events and gatherings to virtual or remote settings. This means there will likely be changes to how Bearcats Bound Orientation is delivered. Be assured that our academic advisors, staff and faculty are dedicated to making your transition to college as smooth as possible. Be sure to check your email regularly so you can stay up to date on any changes made to Bearcats Bound Orientation and reach out to the Orientation staff at if you have any specific questions.
