Thank you for your interest in the Graduate School at the University of Cincinnati. As a graduate student at UC, you will join a diverse community of students enrolled at one of the nation's top public universities. Finding the right graduate school for you is an important decision, and in this section you can learn more about our degree programs, admissions criteria and funding opportunities, along with other helpful information.
Preparing to Apply
Students may take classes at UC without being enrolled in a UC degree program. Their official status is "non-matriculated," which is a traditional academic term meaning "not enrolled in a degree program."
Before you register for classes, you must complete the Basic Data Form. This form enables the UC Registrar to update or create your student record. After submitting the Basic Data Form, it will take a day or two to enter all the information into our student database. Then you will be able to register for classes.
Graduate Studies at UC
The UC Office of Research is pleased to announce that the ability to search for core facilities, test labs, centers and institutes is now available through the Research Directory at research.uc.edu/directory. Each facility listing includes a summary with contact information and a web link where applicable. The facility’s services offered and available equipment are optionally listed as well. The Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry Laboratory in the College of Medicine is a good example of a facility listing that includes both services and equipment.
The Geology department provides graduate students with opportunities to gain field and laboratory experience. Many research projects involve travel to international locations, and Cincinnati and the surrounding tri-state region also serve as an excellent field area for invertebrate paleontology.
Every summer, a group of Nobel laureates and over 600 promising young scientists meet in Lindau, Germany to discuss current research topics and practices. During the summer of 2014, the University of Cincinnati was represented at this prestigious event by two graduate students, Amy Engevik (Systems Biology and Physiology) and Kyle McCracken (Molecular and Developmental Biology/Medical Scientist Training Program). Amy and Kyle share their experiences in Lindau with us.
