Associate of Arts
Why study Liberal Arts?
UC Clermont's associate degree in liberal arts provides students with the broad educational foundation needed for pursuing a baccalaureate degree in a variety of disciplines. The liberal arts are the foundation of many professional educations and executive careers because they help develop critical, analytical and creative thinking skills.
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.
Liberal arts is a very broad field of study that can accommodate people of widely varied aptitudes and interests. It may be especially suited for students who have many interests and high curiosity about the world around them.
A liberal arts major is not limited to one specific vocation. Its aim is to teach students to think critically, analytically and creatively. It educates students in clear, coherent communication skills, both oral and written. It broadens understanding and enhances ethical decision-making. It also prepares students to learn vocational or technical skills easily and quickly. It is the foundation on which executive careers are built.
A liberal arts background is quite useful for pursuing a career in law, medicine, marketing, advertising, insurance, editing and publishing, journalism, sales, teaching or any of the increasingly complex technological industries that demand well-educated professionals.
Students who are enrolled in a two-year transitional degree program will spend most of their classroom time acquiring the foundational courses for a four-year baccalaureate. Generally, they will select a minor when they transfer to a four-year institution.
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 located on 91 wooded acres 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.
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 students may start any semester, provided their transcripts arrive in time to be evaluated before the start of the semester they wish to attend.
Those who have not taken college-level mathematics or English will need to take the placement test. (Unless they have English AP credit.)
Other UC students may transfer into Clermont College by completing the application for change in college and program. We urge students to see their advisor before transferring into a different major to minimize any impact on their degree progress.
