Nine ways we're making it easier to become an Akron Zip

Life has changed for many of us. But it doesn't have to change your college plans. Here's how we're helping to make it easy for you to be a Zip.

1. $50 APPLICATION FEE WAIVED

We’re waiving the application fee for the 2020 summer and fall semesters when students apply at uakron.edu/apply and the Common App.

2. SAT and ACT TESTING NOT REQUIRED

SAT and ACT test scores are not required for admission in the 2020 summer and fall semesters.

3. HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPTS

We realize school transcripts may be delayed. We will work with high schools to make sure this doesn’t affect admission consideration.

4. SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINES EXTENDED

5. CONFIRM-YOUR-ENROLLMENT DEADLINE EXTENDED

We’ve extended the confirmation deadline to allow more time for families to finalize college plans. Also, students/families with hardship can share this information with UA by completing this survey. Confirm your enrollment.

6. FINANCIAL AID AND SCHOLARSHIP ASSISTANCE

The Office of Student Financial Aid is available to assist students/parents anytime of the day or night. Visit our financial aid website or call 330-972-7032.

7. VIRTUAL APPOINTMENTS

While we can’t meet students in person right now, our admissions staff is working remotely to assist future Zips. Students can reach out to an admissions counselor or email admissions@uakron.edu with any questions.

8. JOIN US LIVE ON FACEBOOK

We have a series of information sessions scheduled. Learn about UA and get answers to your questions.

9. VIRTUAL TOURS & INFO SESSIONS

Visiting campus is an important part of the college process. We want students to experience UA from wherever they are, so we’ve put together virtual tours and information sessions.
