UI&U and Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science Partnership Kicks Off

Union Institute and University (UI&U) and the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science (CCMS) are answering the call to graduate more students in the mortuary profession.

The agreement will provide students in the Union Pre-Mortuary Science concentration the first two years of general education for the transfer into the CCMS Bachelors of Mortuary Science program.

“This new partnership is an excellent opportunity for both schools and our region as we facilitate a pathway to the mortuary profession,” said Donna Gruber, Executive Director of the Cincinnati Academic Center.

CCMS is the oldest mortuary science program in the country. CCMS students have an 80% pass rate on the national board exams and 94% are offered employment upon graduation. Real world instructors include licensed funeral directors, certified funeral celebrants, and business owners. (Source: CCMS web page)
