Admission to NOAC can be through either The University of Akron or Kent State University. Please apply to only one institution.
Deadline for Admissions is February 1, 2014.
We will be having a NOAC Visitation day on February 21, 2014. During the visit, you will have the opportunity to meet and talk with NOAC faculty and students.
The day will begin at 8:00 am at Kent State University in the Music and Speech Center. After tours and talks with faculty, a bus will transport everyone to The University of Akron. Lunch will be provided along with tours and a chance to meet with faculty and students. The bus will then take us to the Cleveland Clinic. After tours, the bus will return to Kent State at about 5:00 pm.
All applicants will receive an e-mail invitation to the NOAC Visitation Day. When you receive the email from the NOAC coordinator (approximately 2 weeks before the event), please follow its instructions regarding reservations.
