About Us

Kent State is committed to meeting the needs of all its students. Coming back to school after the military or as an adult gives you different perspective on college than traditional students. Kent State's Center for Adult and Veteran Services is designed to help you build on those life experiences, easing the process of returning to college. Get familiar with Kent State's programs and services for adult learners, and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. 

Pre-Admission Counseling

Not sure where to start on your journey returning to college? Your first step will be to set up a pre-admissions counseling appointment. You will meet with an adviser to discuss your plans to start or complete a college education. During your appointment you can  find out what programs Kent State University offers, what the admissions process entails, how to learn more about financial aid, and what services are available to get you oriented to the campus. Appointments are available during the day, evenings and on Saturdays with an appointment. Contact us by telephone or email for an appointment. 

Kent State Named Military Friendly School Fourth Year in a Row

Kent State has been named a military friendly school by G.I. Jobs for the fourth year in a row. In addition, Kent State University at Ashtabula and Kent State University at Tuscarawas campuses also received the honors, both for the third year in a row.

G.I. Jobs is a magazine dedicated to offering helpful resources and tips to those transitioning from military service to civilian life. The magazine determines and publishes annually the top 20 percent of schools, universities and trade schools that are military friendly.
