Welcome to the Office of Continuing and Distance Education

The Office of Continuing and Distance Education (OCDE) expands access to Kent State University resources in Ohio and beyond. Credit courses, conferences, professional development programs and more are offered on campus or online to meet the unique educational and professional development needs of traditional students, working professionals and adult learners. We build on university strengths in business, health and bio-sciences, technology, education, communication and information, and other areas to turn ideas into new programs for continuing education. Continuing and distance education courses are an excellent way to stay on top of your industry or to continue the lifelong pursuit of knowledge for personal growth and development.
