UA is a great value. We provide more than $120 million in student awards annually, lowering the cost of college.

We offer the best return on investment for our students of any public university in Northeast Ohio. That means we offer a quality education that leads to consistent, long-term payoffs in the workplace.

There's more — students at UA enter the work world with less student-loan debt on average than their counterparts at any other public Ohio university.

UA offers degree programs that are in demand, an array of internship and co-op opportunities, and a competitive cost. All contribute to lower student debt after graduation.

Many of UA's 27,000 students study in science, technology and engineering fields.

Our College of Engineering is widely known for its rigorous academics and for its strong placement—92 percent of the college's graduates have jobs within three months of graduating.

We're not all about the sciences. UA has highly regarded programs in business, the health professions, the arts and other fields. In all, we offer more than 200 majors.
