Welcome to CCU

Founded in 1924, Cincinnati Christian University offers traditional undergraduate studies, adult degree completion and graduate studies. CCU is a fully accredited institution of higher education offering majors and programs to serve the church and shape the world. Our dedication to the biblical text, combined with our unique setting in urban Cincinnati, creates boundless opportunities for ministry, and yields a distinctive educational experience.

Cincinnati Christian University has a strong heritage that grew out of the Restoration Movement, a Christian religious movement that started in frontier areas of the United States in the early 19th century. The campus community consists of approximately 1,000 traditional undergraduate, adult undergraduate, and graduate students, in addition to 34 full-time faculty, 55 adjunct faculty, and 90 administrative and support staff who work together to make our mission a reality.
