International Admissions - Application Procedures

Graduate application form and fee

The Graduate Application should be submitted to the Graduate School with a non-refundable application fee of $60 payable to The University of Akron. The fee for international reapplications is $40. Application fees will not be waived or deferred. Applications that do not accompany the application fee will not be processed.

Application materials should be submitted directly to:

Graduate School
The University of Akron

Application deadlines

The Graduate School processes applications for international students as they are received. We recommend that students apply at least six (6) months in advance of the intended date of enrollment. The Graduate School will process applications received after the six month deadline, however, cannot guarantee admission consideration for the intended date of enrollment.

Note: Each academic department has internal deadlines which need to be followed. Thus, we also recommend that students contact the academic department regarding such deadlines.
