Admission Requirements

This program is open to all students with a high school diploma or GED and the desire to succeed in college. Although admission is open, students accepted into the program must meet the academic standards of the program to advance to upper levels of study.

As a first year student, you will need to take the placement test. This test does not affect your admission; however, the results are essential for your proper placement in classes. You must complete the placement test before you may register for English or mathematics courses. All placement tests are given free of charge.

You should have basic computer skills, a creative personality, and the willingness to work with others to create digital media projects.
The digital media communications program offers students a pathway to pursue a wide range of careers in the communications field, including media production, journalism, advertising, public relations, corporate communications, and many others.

Minors do not apply to associate degree studies.

If you are enrolled in a two-year transitional degree program, you will spend most of your classroom time acquiring the foundational courses for your four-year baccalaureate. Generally, you will select your minor when you transfer to your four-year institution.

The UC Clermont College campus is on 92 wooded acres located in Batavia, Ohio, in the heart of Clermont County. We are relatively small and our faculty-to-student ratio is low. You will find small class size and personal interaction with your instructors create the ideal learning environment. Parking is convenient and at no additional charge. Plus, our tuition is the lowest of the UC colleges.

Our faculty members have received top honors from students for displaying the extra concern and attention needed to promote student academic success.

Expect to learn from professors who have experience in the media and communications industries. You will learn a good foundation of communication theories while developing your digital media production skills with hands-on exercises and projects.

You must complete an application for degree and receive a pre-­certification from your academic advisor the semester before you expect to graduate. You should see your advisor (513) 732-5319 for specific information well in advance of your final semester.

You must be in good academic standing at the college or university you last attended. We accept transfer applications all year long and you may start any semester, provided your transcripts arrive in time to be evaluated before the start of the semester you wish to attend.

If you have not taken college-level mathematics or English, you will need to take the placement test.
