UC International

UC International supports the University of Cincinnati’s global vision of innovation, inclusion, and real-world impact. 

We connect with partners around the world, we give scholars opportunities for international collaboration and we nurture students to become educated about the world they live in.

UC International is comprised of four units:

  • International Admissions handles undergraduate recruiting and enrollment.
  • International Planning develops international institutional partnerships and supports collaborative activities.
  • International Services manages compliance with federal regulations for students, faculty and staff; provides student orientation, support and social programming.
  • Study Abroad coordinates outbound student mobility.

Of course, the work of internationalization involves every department and unit across the university, as well as student organizations, community partners and industry collaborators.

At UC, we are international.
