Airports and Arrivals

There are two airports students should consider when making flight arrangements that are located in close proximity (by car) to Kent:

  1. Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport (airport code: CLE) approximately 50 minutes 
  2. Akron-Canton International Airport (airport code CAK), approximately 30 minutes 

Students must arrive before or on the Program Start Date. For example: if the Program Start Date is August 18, the student may arrive in the US up to 30 days before—the earliest date being July 19.  If for some reason students are not able to arrive by the Program Start Date, contact International Student and Scholar Services by email at We strongly recommend students arrive within a week before Program Start Date.
