Non-Degree Seeking Application
To ensure successful completion of your application please review the points below.
University of Akron undergraduates are required to pay the application fee.
You will be notified via e-mail once all non-degree seeking application materials have been received, and you have been approved by the Graduate School for graduate enrollment at The University of Akron. Included in this e-mail will be your Student Identification Number as well as the Checklist for Incoming Graduate Students, which will provide information on registration, parking, and purchasing textbooks.
Students are admitted for the term for which they seek admission as indicated on the graduate application. Admission for graduate studies is valid for one year, thus students are provided the option of deferring admission to a later semester within the one year timeframe. The offer of admission is void, however, if students do not register for courses within the one year from the semester of admission. This does not apply to admission to those programs that admit for the fall semester only. Admission to such programs is only valid for that fall term for which admission was granted.
Students who are admitted for a given term and then seek to have that term of admission made retroactive will be required to submit a reapplication to the Graduate School along with a fee of $25. There is no guarantee that the academic department will approve admission for retroactive term changes.
