Complete the online Standard Application. There is no required fee at the time you submit the application. A $15 non-refundable admission fee will be charged to your first semester’s tuition statement.
Contact your high school and request that they send an official copy of your transcript to Cincinnati State, Office of Admissions. If you have a GED, you may use this link to request your scores to be sent.
If you earned Advanced Placement (AP) credit or completed College Credit Plus or Dual Credit coursework through another college or university (other than Cincinnati State), request an official transcript from each college/university you attended. Most colleges have an online transcript request process. Search for “transcripts” and you will probably be directed to login to your student portal or referred to the Registrar’s Office. Note: Cincinnati State must receive your official transcript directly from each institution.
We encourage you to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for financial assistance. Apply early for your best chance to receive state aid.
Applicants to Cincinnati State can view the status of your application and financial aid, as well as CState email, through your MyCState student portal.
Please allow 7 to 10 business days for Admissions to process all documents and send you a letter of admission to the College. Once admitted, you will receive next steps and instructions on how to:
- Participate in New Student Orientation
- Schedule your advising appointment and meet with your Pathway Advisor
- Register for classes
Please note that admission to the College does not admit you to all health care programs. Many programs in the Health and Public Safety division have special admission requirements. Please discuss these selective admission requirements with your Pathway Advisor.
