Cincinnati Christian University attracts students who have a passion to live out God's leading. For some, that is applied in a Christian vocational setting—as a preacher, missionary or leader in the church. For others, it is a calling lived out in a career as a teacher, business person, counselor, or musician.
CCU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, the largest regional accrediting association in the United States.
We would love for you to visit our beautiful hilltop campus overlooking downtown Cincinnati. Sit in on a class lecture and talk with a professor. Join us for chapel and contemplate your spiritual direction. Find a table in the Hilltop Coffee Shop and observe student life.
Contact our Admissions office with your schedule and we'd be excited to arrange a campus visit for you.
