The loan debt counseling helps students to understand their rights and responsibilities associated with borrowing student loans and provides an overview of the federal loan programs.

The University of Akron offers Entrance Interview counseling via our website at http://www.uakron.edu/finaid/.

2) 2004-2005 STAFFORD LOAN REQUEST FORM--Students who have received their 2004-2005 Award Notifications must return the 2004-2005 Stafford Loan Request form by Thursday, July 15, 2004 to ensure that funds will be available by the Fall 2004 fee deadline, which is Friday, August 13, 2004.

It’s an unwritten rule that in Northeast Ohio, families and friends celebrate the July 4th holiday at community picnics where the ribs are saucy, the music rocks, the weather obliges and the fireworks sizzle. With that in mind, downtown Akron, Lock 3 park and FirstEnergy Stage is the place to be on Friday, July 2, Saturday, July 3 and Sunday, July 4.

Dubbed the "Akron Family Barbeque" festival, this three-day event whets the appetite with abundant festival foods and beverages, several specialty barbeque vendors, a "best barbeque" competition, an outdoor home show, and concerts by The S.O.S. Band, Howard Hewett, The Black Keys, Slave, The Wanda Hunt Band, For Keeps, Mark Agnesi & Deep Blue Sea, Denzon & The Road Doggz, and Rare Blend. Spotlighting Akron’s young and unknown talent, Friday night features the semi-final competitions for "Akron Idol." Finalists will perform on Sunday night, after which the winner will be announced. Akron’s Fireworks Spectacular display on the inner belt promises the perfect finale to this celebratory festival.

On Friday, July 2, the festival starts at 11 a.m. and runs until 10 p.m. Admission is free until 5:30 p.m. and tickets are $5.00 after 5:30 p.m. Saturday’s hours are 4 p.m. until 10 p.m. with a $5.00 admission fee. On Sunday, July 4, the festival goes from 2 p.m. until 10 p.m., with a $5.00 admission fee. All tickets include the Outdoor Home Show, Akron Idol Competitions, and live entertainment.

If you bring a canned food item to Lock 3 park to benefit the Akron/Canton Food Bank, you can buy one ticket at full price and get the second ticket for half price. Cash-only tickets are sold at the Lock 3 Live! gates 30 minutes before the festival begins. For advance tickets, call the Akron Civic Theatre Box Office at (330) 253-2488 between 11 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday through Friday. Tickets are also available at E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall Ticket Office at (330) 972-7570, or through Ticketmaster Centers or Charge-By-Phone at (330) 945-9400.
