Financial Aid

It's important to apply for financial aid and scholarships each academic year. Cost does not have to be a barrier to achieving your educational goals.

Follow these simple steps to apply for financial assistance:

  • Complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 each year. You can use income estimates if you have not yet completed your taxes. The FAFSA may be submitted online or in paper form. 

NOTE: The priority processing deadline for the Kent State Student Financial Office December 1, 2016 for the 2017-18 academic year. To ensure maximum financial aid eligibility, complete the FAFSA no later than February 1, 2017.

Students applying for financial aid for the 2016-17 academic year should complete their FAFSA immediately for the Fall 2016 or Spring 2017 semesters. The priority deadline for 2016-17 was March 1, 2016.

File Your FAFSA

  • Be sure to use correct school codes when completing the FAFSA:

Kent State University federal school code: 003051  

Kent State University at East Liverpool federal school code: 003056

Kent State University at Salem federal school code: 003061
