The University of Akron Wayne College Admissions

UA Wayne College operates under a policy of rolling admissions, which means you will receive a letter of admission as soon as your credentials are on file with us. However, no decision can be made final until complete credentials are received, and all admissions requirements are completed. Because of that, there is no established date for notification since it is an ongoing procedure.

If you have questions, or for further information please contact the Student Services Center at 330-684-8900 or by email at

Admissions Procedures

  1. Submit an application by using UA's Online Application.
    You will have the opportunity to select Wayne as your campus of attendance.
