Admission - International Student Download to print
Applicants who are not citizens of the United States or currently maintaining immigration status in the United States as a Legal Permanent Resident, Refugee or Asylee must apply as international students. International students who wish to enter Kent State University should allow six months from the date of initial correspondence to the beginning date of classes to complete the application process. This will generally ensure enough time for international applicants to obtain a student visa and make international travel arrangements.
All international applicants (both undergraduate and graduate) must submit application materials to the Office of Global Education. International students wishing to attend one of Kent State's regional campuses must apply and be admitted through the Office of Global Education on the Kent Campus. All enrolled international students must apply and pay for the student group accident and health insurance policy provided by the university. Information about the student group accident and health insurance policy is available from University Health Services.
Please see the policies for Admissions–Graduate Student and Admissions–Undergraduate Student in this Catalog for more information on criteria for admission and application procedures and process, including deadlines.
Please see the Admissions–Transient Student policy in this Catalog for international students desiring transient status at Kent State.
