Scholarship Friday- Early Admission

Scholarship Friday- Standard Admission
Get the edge on Scholarships at UA …
On the afternoon of November 30, 2012 and again, during the afternoon in February, the Honors College of The University of Akron will host scholarship interview days for students who will be new freshmen in fall 2013.
Early admission (non-binding) candidates will be invited to the event on Scholarship Friday- Early Admission. See early admission. If you apply and are offered admission to UA’s Honors College after attending this event, we guarantee that you will receive an offer from the Honors College of at least a $1,000 potentially renewable scholarship for use at UA.
Those who attend one of these two half-day sessions will be interviewed by a team of two Honors College representatives: faculty and/or staff. Some students will receive the exact scholarship amount guaranteed, as scholarship competition is keen. Some students will be offered larger scholarships from the Honors College, in which case the $1,000 is a part of the larger scholarship and is not additional. The Honors scholarship can be combined, however, with offers from other offices at UA, such as the Office of Student Financial Aid. Our guarantee is extended only to those students who attend our Invitation to Excellence Interview Day.
