If you have applied to The University of Akron, but have not received your admission, please visit The Office of Admissions.
If you have been admitted and have not yet confirmed your enrollment, please visit the Accepted Students' page for your next steps.
Transfer Transition programs are half-day events. Once you have paid the confirmation fee you are assigned an Orientation Program based off how you were admitted to the University.
You should have received a confirmation Email to all registered Email accounts (your UA Email included) with your scheduled date. If you did not receive this Email and have paid the confirmation fee, please contact us via email or by phone at 330-972-2622.
Once you're all set with your orientation date, please see the tasks below. By completing this check list, you help us make your orientation program a great one!
Make your travel plans
Print out the valid parking permit included in your email and place it on the dashboard of your vehicle. This pass is valid for any commuter designated lot or deck. Visit the travel information page for more information.
Verify your major
Ensure the major listed in your confirmation Email is correct. An incorrect major could impact your scheduled date. If it is incorrect, please fill out the change of major form and we will communicate any changes to your program if they occur.
