UC Clermont

Non-Degree Seeking

Students may take classes at UC Clermont without enrolling into a degree or certificate program. A non-degree seeking student's official status is "non-matriculated," which is a traditional academic term meaning "not enrolled in a degree program."

The steps below are designed to help you from pre-enrollment to enrollment. Our Admissions staff members are happy to assist you along the way!

Please note there may be late registration fees or late fees assessed to your student bill if registering for classes after the first day. Check calendars for dates.

One Stop online enables you to take care of business without having to run all over campus. You can register for classes, pay your bill, check your grades, request a transcript and more. You can also take care of many of these functions in person at the One Stop Student Services office on UC Clermont's campus.

All UC students are required to have a UC photo ID. A valid student ID is required to use libraries, computer labs, sport and recreation facilities and campus dining centers. The UC ID also serves as the Bearcat Campus Card, a debit card that can be used in all campus vending machines, shops and the UC Bookstore. More information about the Bearcat Campus Card.

To get an ID:

  • You must be registered for classes.
  • Go to the Public Safety Office in the Snyder building on UC Clermont's campus.

Health insurance is automatically provided to you if you enroll in six or more credit hours. Eligible students are billed automatically for single coverage unless insurance is waived or dependent coverage is requested.

Students with private insurance that meets certain qualifications, and who wish to be excluded from the Student Insurance Plan must submit a request no later than the third Friday deadline of the term. You can waive your health insurance online.

International students are not eligible to waive coverage and are required to be covered under the University Student Insurance Plan.
