We know that higher education is about more than a diploma! It’s about planning for a career. We want to help our students get started. You can save on tuition by completing the first two years of your bachelor’s degree at Cincinnati State and then transferring to Northern Kentucky University.
A degree pathway is a curriculum plan that maps the progress from Cincinnati State to NKU, guaranteeing qualified graduates smoother, more cost effective access to NKU programs.
