Tuition to increase for fall semester

Dear students:

Earlier today, the University raised tuition and room-and-board rates by 6 percent for the fall semester. The decision was not made lightly, as we are aware of the effect that college expenses have on you and your family. I want to explain why tuition is increasing, what we are doing in response and why Akron remains a good value.

The additional funding that the increase will generate is necessary to sustain the quality of academic opportunities for you. The additional dollars will allow us to:
  • increase the amount of financial aid and scholarships to ensure that Akron remains affordable to outstanding applicants and current students;
  • keep salaries competitive for our faculty and staff; and
  • meet increases in energy and benefits costs.
The University has prepared these Web pages to explain further about tuition.

We continue to explore all opportunities for expense reduction, while remaining committed to offering high quality academic programs to you. Despite our fiscal challenges in recent years, your University has made great progress: We have strengthened our programs and capabilities, dramatically enhanced our campus facilities and technology, increased private and research funding, and added to our scholarship funds. Our campus today is one of the most dynamic and compelling learning environments in the Midwest, and by any measure, it remains a good value.

The University continues to let our legislators and state candidates know about the need for increased state support. State investments in higher education pay for themselves through job creation, an increased tax base (as graduates enter the work force) and an improved quality of life. We hope you will help us spread the message.

Thank you for letting me share this information with you.

Sincerely,


Dr. F. John Case
Vice President for Finance and Administration/CFO
