The UC Family Portal provides ongoing campus updates on student life, support services, upcoming events and deadlines, family events, involvement opportunities, and more throughout the year.
This online resource and student portal is the entry point to your academic record, university billing, financial aid, and more. As a first-time student, the following directions will allow you to view and act on your financial aid offer.
Gifts to the UC Parents Fund go directly to family and student programming and activities that are not covered by tuition and fees. You can specify a one-time donation or a recurring annual contribution. If you have any questions, please contact the UC Foundation at 513-556-6781.
If you have not signed on previously, search your email account using "Catalyst" to find the introductory email sent to you when you applied for admission. You can also find your UC username.
Given the fast-changing nature of this pandemic, information from this panel discussion may be updated or altered in the weeks and months ahead.
We encourage you to visit the Parent and Family Programs website often for information and resources.
Need help navigating Catalyst? Use this One Stop Catalyst Self-Help Guide for instructions on how to do your UC related business online.
View the Parent Checklist to ensure that required steps are not missed by your student.
Has your student granted you access to view and/or discuss their account? Your student can use the Give Parent/Guest Access link in Catalyst to set up delegated access for a parent (or other party). You will receive an email with instructions once your student has granted you access.
You are able to view your student's To Do List items in Catalyst, with delegated access. It is important to submit requested documentation as soon as possible.
Review due dates and payment options, including the Tuition Payment Plan, by visiting the Bursar's website.
We encourage you to become an engaged and informed resource for your student. Our office is here to help! Please feel free to reach out to us anytime at 513-556-1200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parent & Family Programs provides families with information about student services and resources, campus engagement opportunities, and a dedicated place to receive support in helping their students successfully navigate the UC experience.
When your student goes off to college, it can be an adjustment for the whole family. You may not see each other as often, and your communication style may shift. While you will most likely text or talk with your student throughout the week, small gestures to remind your Bearcat that you are thinking about them can go a long way in helping to make their new "home-away-from-home" feel more comfortable.
