You can get the exact cost on their website but Honestly they are not that expensive in comparison to other colleges. The campus is spread out and there is no parking anywhere. And the surrounding neighborhood is bad real bad there is a shooting there everyday. But I enjoy UC a lot during the day campus life is vibrant. If you are short on money consider loans and grants and include the cost of a dorm. I would not recomend living near campus (on campus is good) If you are going to drive you deffinately have to consider the cost of a parking garage pass you will never find a place on the street. The campus is on the metro route and there are some good neighboorhoods 15 minutes from campus on the line too. Good luck

I don't know what haileigh32 is talking about. I go to UC and I have never had to buy a parking pass. If you are going to the Main Campus, there is plenty of parking especially if you get there early (before 10am).

I wouldn't consider UC's main campus spread out. What campus are you comparing it to haileigh32? Have you been to OSU or MIAMI?

I actually like the fact that UC is in an urban environment rather than a sheltered college town like other universities. Crime is one of the tradeoffs, but it is not nearly as bad as haileigh32 would like you to believe. There is not a shooting everyday. The only area around campus that I would avoid at night is the area around Short Vine (the small stretch of vine st to the west of Jefferson).

I believe the program you are interested in is part of DAAP, which may have a different tuition than the college of Arts and Science. go to uc.edu to find out.

good luck

If you want to save the most money. I would suggest you start at Cincinnati State, which is not far from UC and then finish your last 2 years at UC. They have a partnership program ( Cincinnati State UC Pathways Program (http://cincinnatistate.edu/FutureStudent/Cincinnati+State+UC+Pathways+Program.htm - broken link) )

that allows youto get a $2,100 scholarship. Cincinnati State is also much cheaper than UC. I know people who have taken this same path for Urban Planning, but if you plan on taking that route talk to advisors at both UC and Cincinnati State to make sure you are taking the right classes.

I don't know your situation and I am not a guidance couselor, so there may be better options out there for you. I just thought I would help because UC is not the most helpful when it comes to answering questions (lots of red tape). Go to UC and talk to an advisor. If you are not in the area call 513-556-1100 and they should be able to direct you to the right person.

good luck

Let me guess you don't even go out at night because yes crime is bad my cousin was murdered two years ago leaving the mad frog and my best friend was raped leaving a late night class. One of my english class mates was robbed a gun point in the parking garage. I could keep going but I don't want to

I have been late to or even missed several classes due to the lack of parking on the street and not having any money to park in a lot or garage (because my mommy and daddy don't pay for my school), and seeing how it's obvious that this poster has to work as well it's just plain stupid to think they will get to school before 10am everyday I sure the hell couldn't.

I think everyone is looking for something different in a college and I gave my opinion, and I think it's wrong to talk something up just for the sake of doing so.

Yes actually I have attended college at Miami, Xavier, Cincinnati State and UC and if you would of read my original post you would of seen that despite everything I just said I still like UC the best but a honest question deserves an honest answer.

UC has worked real hard the last couple of years to work on the crime aspect. It's a urban campus... you're going to have a urban atmosphere. The lighting at night has improved drastically and police patrol has stepped up as well. Crime rates have decreased over the past few years and it's only going to get better. The university is putting a lot of money into the surrounding neighborhoods, which in turn raises property values, which increases rent which pushes out low-income crime problems. This school once was a commuter college in a bad neighborhood but is quickly turning into a college campus. Just don't live on the east side of campus, by short vine!

and tuition is right at $9,500 for the year for in-state tuition. Not sure about out of state.

Vision-Quest. Just like most states, it takes a year to get residency in Ohio. But there is a lot you can do in that year. Get based in Cincy. It has a lot to offer. I am sure you have checked into this. What other schools are you interested in?
