(Highland Heights, KY) - On Wednesday, Northern Kentucky University announced it will be offering a 50% tuition discount to all Cincinnati Christian University students after the closure of CCU was announced on Monday.
CCU notified students that it will no longer offer classes at the end of the Fall 2019 semester, displacing nearly 700 students.
"We hope the 50 percent discount in tuition provides an option for these students and helps ease the transition.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or would like to speak to our VP of Admissions.
