Our university was built on a hilltop in Akron — a word meaning “the highest point.” For over 150 years, that’s where we’ve set our sights, rising from one peak to another in engineering, business, technology, health care, and the arts and sciences. Bound and determined to meet every challenge, we continue to climb, to forge new paths and reach new heights — and we want you to join us. We have 200+ degrees and programs, taught by expert faculty and enhanced by internships or other hands-on learning. You’ll graduate ready to rise in the global job market.
Are you interested in esports and gaming? Well, we have a scholarship just for you. Any prospective high school student and all incoming freshman are eligible to apply. As one of the first Division I schools to form a varsity esports program, the University of Akron is setting the standard for intercollegiate sports competition. All varsity-level players have access to scholarships worth $1000. Applicants must maintain a 2.5 GPA.
