Apply for Admission

Please select the application that best matches your status for admission to Cincinnati State.

Note: We are currently using the College’s job application software (called PayCor) to process your application for admission. So if it reads like you are applying for a job… just go with it.

Standard Application for Degree or Certificate
Use this application if you are a US Citizen or immigrant and plan to earn a degree or certificate.
College Credit Plus (CCP)
Use this application if you are in grades 7-12 and are interested in earning high school and college credit before graduating high school.
International Student
Use this application if you are an international student seeking a F-1 or M-1 visa status.
Non-Degree / Visiting Student
Use this application if you are a visiting student and/or do not plan to earn a degree or certificate.

After you have submitted your application and all required documentation, please allow 10-14 days for us to process your application, and email your letter of admission with next steps.

If you were accepted to Cincinnati State and/or registered for classes within the last year, you do not need to reapply and may contact Academic Advising for help in registering for classes. Former CCP students who have since graduated HS, will need to submit a new application.

Please contact the Office of Admissions with questions.
