At the University of Cincinnati, we believe all students should have equal opportunities to receive a quality education, regardless of income. That’s why we are committed to making your college education as affordable as we can. Through the financial aid process and our Co-op Program, we’re here to help you reduce out-of-pocket expenses. 
Did you know nearly all students are eligible for financial assistance? Financial aid can be provided in the form of scholarships, grants, work-study and loans. At UC, we take it one step further by allowing students to also offset costs through paid co-op experiences.
The only application necessary in the financial aid process is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA opens on October 1 before the upcoming academic year and must be completed annually. We recommend completing it as soon as possible, as it determines your eligibility for the following:
