The University of Cincinnati Clermont College, also known as UC Clermont, is a regional campus of the University of Cincinnati. UC Clermont is situated on 91.2 acres (37 ha) in Batavia, Ohio.
The college opened in 1972 and offers more than fifty associate degree and certificate programs, five bachelor degree programs in conjunction with the main University of Cincinnati campus. UC Clermont is an open admissions institution, providing access to higher education to anyone with a high school diploma or equivalency. Clermont College's rolling admissions policy allows students to enroll any academic quarter: autumn, winter, spring or summer.
UC Clermont sponsors a variety of fine arts, including the Calico Children's Theatre and the Park National Bank Art Gallery. Additionally, the UC Clermont College Krueger Auditorium is also the home of the Clermont Philharmonic Orchestra. 2010 marks the 13 year partnership between the Clermont Philharmonic Orchestra and the college. Student organizations include Collegiate Ministries, UC Clermont Association for Paralegal Students (UCCAPS), The Lantern (college newspaper) and the UC Clermont Fencing Club.
In 2010 select programs at the Clermont campus moved to a new campus, known as UC East, located off of St. Rt. 32. at the former Batavia Transmission plant, due to Clermont College's recent enrollment growth. UC East is now home to many of the nursing and other health-related programs from UC Clermont.
