Dual Enrollment Programs' mission is aligned with the University's mission through collaboration with Ohio high schools to offer college credit classes to qualified Ohio high school students. We work collaboratively with students, parents and school counselors to help students earn college credit that in most instances will also count for high school credit towards graduation. In most cases, students who are able to earn college credit in high school have fewer student loans and persist to graduation at higher rates than students who do not earn college credit while in high school.
Post-Secondary Enrollment Option Program (PSEOP)
The Post-secondary Enrollment Options program (PSEOP) at Kent State University is designed to provide qualified public high school students with the opportunity to enhance their high school education with a true college experience.
The PSEOP program is not intended to replace coursework available in high school, or to provide high school students with a full-time college course load.
The Dual Credit program at Kent State University is designed to provide qualified high school students with the opportunity to enhance their high school education by earning college credit while they are still in the high school.
High school based dual credit are those courses offered through a collaborative agreement between Kent State University and a school district, taught by a qualified high school teacher on a high school campus, and earning a student both high school and college credit.
Science Experience Internship
The Science Experience Internship allows qualified high school students the opportunity to participate in research under the guidance of a professor in the following areas:
- Liquid Crystal Institute (LCI)
- Computer Science
Students who are interested in participating in the Science Experience should submit an application for the Post-secondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEOP) to the Dual Enrollment Programs office by the deadline listed on the application. Students should also submit a Science Experience Request Form. Once a student is admitted, the Dual Enrollment Programs staff will coordinate with University faculty to determine the most appropriate placement for students based on their research interests. Students will be placed with a faculty member and will meet with the professor to determine a research schedule. The student should plan to spend 3 hours per week for 15 weeks per semester as part of the program. Students who successfully complete the Science Experience course will earn one credit hour of Kent State University credit.
