New rules are in place for those who want to drop a class
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Starting in Fall 2011, the University has revised its rules for dropping or withdrawing from a course.

 For graduate and undergraduate students

  • You may drop a class up to Monday, Sept. 5. A "drop" will not appear on your transcript. The class simply "disappears."
  • You may withdraw from a class between Sept. 5 and Sunday, Oct. 9 through ZipLine (no signatures required).
  • If you do not drop or withdraw, you will receive a grade in the class.

If you withdraw, a "WD" will appear on your transcript. You should know that a withdrawal may affect your financial aid, eligibility for on-campus employment and eligibility for insurance. Speak with your adviser for details.

 For undergraduate students only

  • You must consult your academic adviser
    • before withdrawing from more than two courses before you have earned 32 credits; and
    • before withdrawing from more than two courses after you have earned 32 credits but before you have earned 64 credits.  (This does not count withdrawals that occurred before you earned 32 credits.)
  • You may not withdraw from more than four courses before you have earned 64 credits.  Until the fall 2013 semester, this does not apply to students who enrolled in the University before fall 2011.  Starting in the fall 2013 semester, it applies to every undergraduate student.
  • You may not withdraw from the same course more than twice.  Until the fall 2013 Semester, this does not apply to students who enrolled in the University before fall 2011.   Starting in the fall 2013 semester, it applies to every undergraduate student.
  • Exceptions may be made for extraordinary non-academic reasons (e.g., medical treatment or convalescence, military service). See your adviser.

The new rules are intended to help you graduate on time. Students who withdraw on a regular basis often do not finish their programs and earn degrees. Students who withdraw frequently tend to deplete their financial aid too early. Further, a pattern of withdrawals sends the wrong message to potential employers or to graduate schools. It says, “When the going gets rough, I quit.”

This is a summary of the new rules. Your adviser can answer specific questions.

'Center for Service and Leadership' is the new name for 'the Hub'
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
To provide UA students with an even more well rounded college experience, the Department of Student Life has expanded its program offerings in the areas of engagement, leadership and service.

To better reflect all that is offered, the department has adopted a new name "the Center for Service and Leadership" for the area on the first floor of the Student Union that was formerly known as the Hub.

Here's some of what you'll find:

  • Student organization pods
  • Zips Programming Network
  • Greek Life Office
  • Student Organization Resource Center (SOuRCe)

The Department of Student Life also has added a coordinator of civic engagement to oversee community outreach programs such as Make a Difference Day, Alternative Spring Break and UA's participation in Ohio Day of Service, as well as other opportunities.

A coordinator of leadership programs will provide more leadership training and opportunities for all interested students.

"Through engagement and service programs on campus and in the community, we can offer our students opportunities to build skills that will serve them well with employers after they graduate," says Anne Bruno, director of the Student Union.

Also available to students is OrgSync, an online community that serves as an involvement and organizational management tool for students, student organizations and their campus advisers. At UA, students can use OrgSync to share their interests and learn about the 200-plus organizations on campus. In turn, UA's student organizations can reach out to the students that have indicated an interest in them.

"The Center for Service and Leadership is a destination place," says Bruno. "We want all of our students to reach out to us and to learn by engaging in leadership and service opportunities."

The University of Akron football team will hold an open to the public practice on Saturday, Aug. 20, from noon-2 p.m. ET at InfoCision Stadium – Summa Field. Following practice, the team will participate in a fan meet-and-greet and autograph session in the west concourse. Admission and parking are free of charge.

Fans are encouraged to park in Lots 9 and 10 near the stadium and should enter the venue through either Gate 2 or 3 at the north end of the facility. Gates are scheduled to open at 11:45 a.m.

Inflatables, interactive games, a face painter and balloon artist will be set up atop the north end zone building and along the west concourse throughout the afternoon. Those in attendance will be eligible for prize giveaways and have the opportunity to purchase season tickets.

UA's home opener comes on Sept. 10 versus Mid-American Conference East Division foe Temple. That game will begin at 6 p.m. and be covered by ESPN3. A variety of special events will encompass the day, including a salute to local heroes (police, fire, safety) and a Military Appreciation Day, as well as ticket promotions designed for employees of both the city of Akron and Summit County, and local motorcycle organizations.

The Zips play five additional Saturday home games this season – Virginia Military Institute (Sept. 24 / Youth and Band Day), Florida International (Oct. 8 / Homecoming), Ohio (Oct. 22 / Zippy Bobblehead Giveaway), Central Michigan (Oct. 29 / Hall-Roo-Ween) and the annual battle for the Wagon Wheel with neighborhood rival Kent State (Nov. 12).

Conversation Partners Program
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
The English Language Institute (ELI), UA's English program for international students, invites UA students, faculty, and staff to participate in its Conversation Partners Program. Through this program, the ELI pairs an international student who is learning English in our program with an American partner for one hour of informal conversation per week. ELI students come from all over the world and bring with them a wide variety of educational, political, cultural, religious, and linguistic backgrounds. This program is a wonderful opportunity to learn about another country and culture AND to make an international student feel welcome here in Akron.

Sign-up for the Fall 2011 Conversation Partners Program begins August 22 in the ELI Office in Olin Hall 302. The one-hour weekly meetings will run from the week of mid-September through November 18. Call (330) 972-7544 for more information.
