Return to campus

Updated July 15, 2020

We look forward to welcoming you to campus this autumn with a combination of face-to-face, hybrid and online courses.


Rec Center and Student Union openings: The Student Recreation and Wellness Center will open Aug. 17, and the Jean Hower Taber Student Union on Aug. 3.

Online fee charge is waived. The $15 per credit hour charge for online courses has been waived for the Fall 2020 semester due to COVID-19. We appreciate your patience as we make these corrections to student bills.

Class descriptions in My Akron: Based on your feedback, we have improved our descriptions of the class types (online, hybrid, etc.) you see in My Akron.
