UC Clermont Student Resources
The Academic Success Center will still provide tutoring online in the following subjects during the time that face to face courses are suspended:
Writing, Math, Chemistry, IT, Accounting, Study Skills, Business and Economics, and ASL
If you have never had a virtual session before, this is a great opportunity to try it. All you need to do is email the ASC to schedule a session (email@example.com). We will need the following information:
- Your name
- M-number or UC username
- Phone number
- Subject and course you want help in
- A time frame when you are available for a tutoring session (sessions last approximately one hour).
Don’t be discouraged if you are uncomfortable with technology. Our staff will walk you through what to do. You can make multiple appointments — using the first one as an introduction to using the technology. Many students are pleasantly surprised at how easy and helpful the session ends up being. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
While the Advising Center office location is closed over the next few weeks, UC Clermont Advisors will continue to hold advising appointments via a remote format. Students must make appointments using Starfish Connect but instead of physically meeting, we will be speaking with you through your device using Microsoft Teams or over the phone. Our physical office location in room 235 Student Services building will be closed.
- We will work to respond to emails Monday – Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.
- Keep in mind that if your academic advisor is unable to reach you during your scheduled appointment, he/she will send you an email as follow-up.
- Ten Minute Tuesdays will occur via email. Simply email your quick questions to your academic advisor on Tuesdays.
- Here is the listing of all academic advisors based on programs. Your academic advisor will be sending you an email with further detailed information.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, effective immediately, all required clinical rotations for UC Clermont students will be suspended through the end of the semester. The College of Allied Health Sciences and UC Blue Ash have made similar decisions.
We realize that many of our sites have already cancelled and more will likely cancel. Faculty will contact all clinical sites right away to let them know of this decision.
We have made this decision for multiple reasons:
1. To limit the spread of COVID-19 by having fewer individuals in our clinical sites.
2. To be consistent with other colleges of allied health across the United States.
3. To respond to recent increases in cases and suspected cases of COVID-19.
4. To not exacerbate the dwindling supplies of PPE (personal protective equipment).
As soon as we are released to return to clinical sites, we will work with both the sites and the students to complete the competencies required for graduation. Right now, student health and safety, and those with whom they interact, must be the priority.
