To apply to the Honors College, submit a Kent State admission application during the fall semester of your senior year in high school. Your application to Kent State must be completed by January 15 to be eligible for university merit scholarships and Honors College admission.
There is no separate application to the Honors College and no additional application fee. Once you have been admitted to Kent State and should you meet our minimum requirements for admission- 3.60 gpa and 27 ACT Composite (1210 SAT Reading and Math), we will automatically receive your name and credentials from the Admissions Office. You will then receive a letter of invitation to join the Honors College in late fall.
Each Honors-eligible student is evaluated for an Honors scholarship, which ranges from $1,000 to full in-state tuition, room, board, and books.
