Out-of-state student scholarships and tuition

New Akron Advantage Award

Out-of-state students on Akron Guarantee Scholarships

If you're a non-Ohio resident, and you have a 3.00+ GPA and 20 ACT or 1020 SAT, you will receive a $3,000 Akron Advantage Award.

The Akron Advantage Award out-of-state student scholarship is renewable as long as you remain in good academic standing. This award will reduce your cost of tuition from $15,500 to $12,500.

Plus, you will receive the Akron Guarantee Scholarship. Its initial award is $500 to $6,500, and it increases from there as you earn credits.
