High school counselors

The University of Akron recognizes school counselor efforts to assist students with the college enrollment process throughout the school year. As a result, we have developed this website to provide helpful links for you. We look forward to connecting with you, and hope to welcome your students to the Zips family!

Please feel free to contact the UA admissions counselor assigned to your school for assistance.

Special group visit

We welcome groups of up to 50 students in 9th through 12th grade to visit UA for a 30-minute general admissions presentation and a one-hour walking tour of campus.

You & the Roo visit

Admitted seniors have the opportunity to shadow a class within their intended academic major. Students may also choose to meet with representatives from a variety of departments (intended academic department, financial aid, Williams Honors College, etc.).

Daily info sessions

UA offers information sessions and campus tours Monday through Friday at 10:15 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. An admissions representative leads the information session, while the campus tour is student-guided. Programs are also available on select Saturdays.

Visit day events

Interact with current students and representatives from UA's academic areas, learn the processes to apply for admission, financial aid, scholarships, and housing, as well as tour the campus.
