New Student Orientation
We are excited that you have made the decision to attend the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College (UCBA). In order to prepare for orientation and get the most out of your experience, be sure to read the information in this section, and the orientation resource book thoroughly. In an effort to make your transition smooth and successful, we have designed an orientation program for all new students and their parents/family members.
Orientation is required for all first-year UCBA students.
The Mission of Student Orientation
Our top priority is to support you in a successful academic and social transition to the UC Blue Ash community. The purpose of our orientation is to introduce new students and their families to the quality academics, resources and community fostered at UC Blue Ash College. Orientation is the catalyst to support your transition to our institution by preparing you for the academic rigor, personal responsibilities, and intellectual, cultural and social climate of our campus.
What Is New Student Orientation?
UC Blue Ash will offer several orientation programs between April-May for summer semester and between May-August for the fall semester. All first-year students are required to attend one of these 4-hour orientation programs. During orientation, we will introduce new students and their families to faculty, staff and current students. You will learn about the ‘business of being a student’, how to be successful in and out of the classroom, and will work with the advising staff to register for your first semester of college classes.
New Transfer Students
Transfer students have the option of using an online orientation or coming on-campus for a transition session inorder for them to get acquainted with their new school.
