You will meet your academic advisor and schedule classes at your Bearcats Bound Orientation session.

Post-Orientation Checklist

The Bearcat Card is the official ID for the University of Cincinnati. You can save time by submitting your own passport-style ID photo at https://idphoto.uc.edu/. The Public Safety office in Clifton will send your ID card to the Clermont Orientation Staff. They will mail your Student ID to the mailing address on file.  *During the first two weeks of every semester, we will have Student IDs available for pickup in 100 Student Services. Then mail service will resume.

Parking Permit Registration

Beginning Summer semester 2022 on UC Clermont campus, Parking Services' license plate recognition system will be utilized full time, in lieu of actual parking permits (hang tags).
With monitoring and enforcement being kept by the license plate recognition system, your vehicle(s) information must continue to be kept current and updated in the Parking Services system. Out-of-date vehicle information could result in a citation. 

Find details and update your vehicle(s) information on the UC Clermont Parking Services website.

If you wish to enroll in the Tuition Payment Plan to help simplify your college finances, please review the important deadlines.

If you are planning to use financial aid and have not already completed your FAFSA, please do so promptly. Bills are due five days before the class(es) begin. Please see Enrollment Services if you have any questions or concerns about billing, student accounts or registration. If you would like a third party (such as a parent, guardian or guest) to have access privileges to view/pay your bill, class schedule and/or grades, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) requires a release by the student. Please visit the Delegated Access page to give access to those whom you wish to have access to your school information.

If you expect to receive a refund, please sign up for direct deposit to expedite the processing of your refund.

Authorization to Use Financial Aid

Catalyst To-Do list item: Permission must be granted so that financial aid will be applied to anything on the student bill (like eBooks, student health insurance, late fees). Otherwise, financial aid only pays on the cost of tuition. 

All UC students registered for six or more credit hours are required to have health insurance. UC will automatically enroll you in the University health insurance plan to assure we meet this federal regulation. If you have private coverage, you can waive this health insurance plan, but must do so by the associated deadline.

Check your UC Email Account

Your UC email account is the official communication tool of the University. Billing, financial aid and academic information will be communicated via UC email as soon as you confirm admission; we recommend you check this account daily.
