“Although I loved the school, I realized that the program I was in was not for me. I decided to return back to school in the fall at The University of Akron, pursuing a degree in financial planning closer to home.”

“I transferred to UA because of the I/O psychology program. But in talking with my professor and doing some research, I discovered that I am a more of a hands-on person. That led me to change my major to HR.”

What courses will I have to take?

  • Your initial course placement depends on the courses you have taken at your previous university. If you have not taken college-level Math or English, you may also need to take a UA placement test.
  • After you confirm your attendance at UA, you will be required to attend a New Student Orientation program. Your Orientation will include an individualized appointment with a business academic advisor who will determine what classes you take.
