Experience UC Clermont

Welcome to UC Clermont! The mission of Orientation is to facilitate the successful transition of first-year and transfer students to UC Clermont College.

To achieve our mission, Orientation provides the opportunity to:

  • Offer new students the chance to meet with their Academic Advisor
  • Provide new students with a comprehensive understanding of class schedules, registration, technology and University policies and procedures
  • Deliver information on the resources and programs offered to enhance student success
  • Meet other new students attending UC Clermont during the same semester

What is Orientation?

UC Clermont will offer several Orientation sessions during April and May for classes starting in the Summer semester, and beginning in April for classes starting in the Fall semester. All first-year and transfer students are required to attend one of these four-hour orientation programs. You will learn about the "business of being a student," how to be successful in and out of the classroom, and will work with the advising staff to choose and register for your first semester of college classes. 

Placement Tests and Orientation

New Student Orientation is mandatory for all new students planning to attend UC Clermont. Sessions will be offered at various times prior to the start of each semester and students are assigned an Orientation date once Placement Testing (or proof of exemption) is completed. Contact Testing Services for additional information about placement testing.

Accessibility Information

UC Clermont seeks to ensure that all students with disabilities can freely and actively participate in all facets of college life. Please contact Accessibility Resources at (513) 732-5327 in advance of your Orientation date to arrange for accessible seating, alternate format for printed materials or other accessibility needs.

Parents and Guests

We offer a separate parent session at each event that begins two hours after each session’s start time. Parents and guests that would like to attend the entire Orientation session might have to stand in some breakout sessions.

If you have any questions regarding New Student Orientation, please call Julie Eagen at 513-558-5364 or email Julie.Eagen@uc.edu
