Pre-Sport Administration : Pre-Sport Admin-Transfer


Why study Pre-Sport Administration : Pre-Sport Admin-Transfer?

This Pre-Sport Administration program is designed as a NKU-transfer pathway.

Ready for a fast-paced, exciting career in athletics? The associate degree program in Pre-Sport Administration provides students with the first two years of study toward their bachelor’s degree in sport administration. Sport administration focuses on the business side of the sport industry.

Sport is an approximately $500-billion industry. Given the economic magnitude and pervasive nature of sport in society, the need has never been greater for educated/trained sport managers. However, competition is fierce for entry-level positions. Those with the best education have the best opportunity to obtain a position and be successful.

UC Clermont's program was developed to meet the standards of the Sport Management Program Review Council. It provides graduates with a strong technical foundation and the sport business skills necessary to successfully enter the field of sport management. Sport administration students will have an opportunity to earn a career-oriented degree with employment opportunities in a growing industry.

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 an English and mathematics placement test if you have not obtained the minimum ACT/SAT score required for exemption. These tests do not affect your admission; however, the results are essential for your proper placement in classes. You must complete placement tests before you register for English or mathematics courses. All placement tests are given free of charge.

The most important factor to success is a love of sports. You also will need critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills. It is essential that you have a high level of interpersonal skills for building and maintaining positive relationships with a diverse array of constituents. You also need excellent communication skills and the ability to lead and motivate others as well as the ability to see the “big picture.”

There are approximately 5 million people working in sport-related occupations. Graduates are prepared for a variety of positions in professional sports, college athletics and high school athletic administration. Career opportunities exist within sport associations, sporting events and the management of sport venues. Other opportunities include the field of health and fitness, recreation and within the sporting goods industry.

Academic advising is an essential part of your educational experience.

We are committed to providing advice and assistance throughout your academic journey. You and your advisor work together to create an academic plan based on your goals.

The UC Clermont campus is on 91 wooded acres located in Batavia, Ohio, in the heart of Clermont County. Our faculty-to-student ratio is low. You will find small class sizes 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 includes professionals with significant experience in the business world. Active advisory committees help assure the relevance of lectures and teaching exercises. The diversity of the student population — in age, work experience and background — heighten the value of classroom discussions.

The sport administration student group, “Society of Sport Leaders”, provides students with the opportunity to get involved and associate with fellow students interested in sport. (Although the group is based on UC’s Uptown Campus, we encourage Clermont students to participate.)

The Academic Success Center (ASC) is committed to helping students become successful, independent learners through partnerships that promote individual interests and abilities. We encourage and support opportunities for self-discovery in an informal environment that promotes academic skill development.

The best students recognize that they can sometimes use a little extra help to achieve their academic goals. Seeking tutoring is a responsible choice, demonstrating that students care about their academics enough to go the extra mile to succeed. Stop by the ASC in Jones 104 and meet our highly trained team of tutors who are ready and willing to assist you.

You must complete an application for degree the semester before you expect to graduate. You should see your advisor in the Advising Center for assistance. 

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.

Other UC students may transfer into UC Clermont College by completing the application for change in college and program form. You are urged to see your advisor before transferring into a different major to minimize any impact on your degree progress and to verify that you have met all pre-requisites.

You must demonstrate English proficiency. You must also meet admissions deadlines and visa requirements and provide documentation of sufficient funds before we can complete your admission. Please call the International Admissions Office at (513) 556-2069 for details or email international.admissions@uc.edu with questions.
