Fall tuition is due Monday, August 25, 2014. We encourage you to explore your payment options now and make arrangements as soon as possible.
Check My Akron to view your student account information and due dates.
We have several ways for you to make payments:
Log in to My Akron to access CASHNet and pay your tuition and fees using a credit card. CASHNet accepts MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Visa. CASHNet charges a 2.9 percent service fee for credit cards.
Students who visit Simmons Hall to pay their tuition and fees via credit card will be directed to CASHNet.
To pay your tuition and fees using an e-check, log in to My Akron to access CASHNet and provide your bank's routing number and checking or savings account number.
Pay your tuition and fees in person at the cashier windows in the lobby of Simmons Hall (show on map).
Cash, checks and money orders are accepted in person. Credit card payments must be made online through My Akron and CASHNet.
To mail your tuition and fee payment by check, include your itemized statement and be sure to write your student ID number on your check. Mail your payment to:
University of Akron
P.O. Box 2260

Payments that are not received by the due date will be considered late, so mail your check early. Postmark dates are not considered.
Most students qualify for some form of financial aid, such as subsidized loans, grants, or scholarships. Financial aid money can be applied to your student account balance.
If you are planning to use financial aid to pay for your tuition and fees, but it is not going to disburse before the due date, check My Akron to verify that your aid is listed as "anticipated."
See the Office of Financial Aid for more information.
