CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Board of Trustees at the University of Cincinnati met Tuesday morning and voted unanimously to switch to semesters beginning in the 2012 school year.

Most colleges and programs at UC have operated on the quarter system for over 40 years.

The change was proposed because student said they were having problems finding summer jobs and internships.

UC is one of four universities in Ohio to operate on the quarter system. The others are Wright State, The Ohio State University and Ohio University.
