Fees and Expenses

Fees subject to change without notice.

Student Expenses

It is the responsibility of the student to know the correct amount of all fees, including the non-Ohio resident surcharge. In any question concerning fees, surcharges or residence, it is the responsibility of the student, parents or court-appointed guardian to furnish such proof as may be required by The University of Akron. A student who is in doubt about residency status should consult with the Office of the University Registrar.

It is the responsibility of the registrar to assess fees and surcharges at the time of registration; information given by the student at that time is used in the assessment. Each registration is later audited by the University auditor, and appropriate additional charges or refunds will be made.

All fees and surcharges are due at the time of registration or on the specified fee payment deadline. The status of the student as of the opening day of the semester or session will determine the final, correct amount of fees and surcharges.

An Installment Payment Plan for tuition and fees is available to all students.
