Single Parents

Becoming a successful college student is a stressful and sometimes confusing transition for everyone. Add children and adult responsibilities, and it can seem overwhelming! That’s why the Center for Adult and Veteran Services offers Literacy and Independence for Family Education (LIFE). This unique program is designed for single parents to study and learn together. Special services such as workshops and help accessing family resources will assist LIFE learning community members with the awesome task of being student-parents. We know you can be successful with the right support.

The LIFE program is open to students who meet these requirements:

  • Taking classes at least part-time
  • Minimum G.P.A. of 2.0
  • Admitted to Kent State University Main Campus
