The Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science believes in the approach of retaining diversity in its student body, which enhances and expands each student’s horizons and opportunities. Our students believe in the dignity of funeral service and are committed to competent, professional service to all demographics.

Our curriculum is concentrated in mortuary science and offers students two degree options as fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and the American Board of Funeral Service Education, the Associate of Applied Science and Bachelor of Mortuary Science.

Our programs are campus-based with full-time schedules Monday through Friday.  We are committed to providing excellence in practical and clinical experience and believe this is most effectively achieved through practical, hands on experience.  Because of our committment to excellence, we do not offer online course curriculum.  

To meet CCMS entrance requirements, applicants are required to complete general education course credits from a regionally accredited institute for transfer to CCMS.  Prospective students may use our Transfer Credit Worksheet to determine which courses are transferrable.  Transfer credits must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better, with each course reflecting a letter grade of “C” or better.

For questions about entrance requirements or for assistance in preparing to apply, please contact our Admissions Director at (513) 618.1926 or
