Congratulations, you've been admitted and you're on your way to becoming a student! There are a few things you need to do be assigned an orientation date.
You can submit the form and pay online here.
We will select your orientation date and let you know when you can come to orientation.
Did you receive an Enrollment Packet? If you did, you've already been scheduled for orientation. Your date is listed inside the Enrollment Packet.
If you have any other questions, call the office at 330.972.2622.
Yes. The University of Akron requires all new students and new transfer students to participate in an orientation program before enrolling in classes. Orientation programs are offered on a variety of dates prior to the start of each academic term.
No, Admissions programs are not the same as orientation. At orientation, you will schedule for classes and much more. Find out about what you'll do at orientation.
Transfer Transition has been designed to ease the student's transition from one institution to The University of Akron. Transfer students are required to attend a Transfer Transition orientation program to meet with an academic adviser, review their degree plan and to enroll in the appropriate courses toward degree completion.
It can affect your Academic Advising appointment. Contact the Office of Admissions at 330-972-7100 or firstname.lastname@example.org prior to orientation to change your major.
The confirmation fee cannot be waived. If you have applied for financial aid and are experiencing a hardship, you may be eligible to defer the fee to your financial aid. Contact New Student Orientation to request information regarding a confirmation fee deferral.
While not required, your parents can attend Family Focus Orientation, which is offered in conjunction with most orientation programs during the summer months. To register for Family Focus Orientation, e-mail us at email@example.com.
You're a student! Check out some of the great Akron Experience events we have planned throughout the summer and into the new year.
