International Admissions supports Kent State University’s goal to engage the world beyond our campus by recruiting academically talented and culturally diverse international students, maintaining expertise in the evaluation of credentials received from institutions abroad, advocating on behalf of international applicants, facilitating international credit transfer, enhancing administrative systems, contributing to the integrity of Kent State’s reputation abroad, ensuring a positive application experience, and serving as a liaison to academic departments, international partners, government officials, scholarship bodies and other key stakeholders.
New freshmen applicants must finish secondary school in their home country by the time of enrollment to be eligible for university. Any student who has already enrolled in any post-secondary (higher education) institution is required to apply as a transfer student.
Undergrad Transfer Students
Applicants are considered transfers if they have ever taken post-secondary/college level courses or been enrolled in a post-secondary (higher education) institution. Any student previously enrolled in a higher education institution cannot apply as a new freshman.
