Online Program

Why the Kent MPA Online?

In designing an entire online program, our primary concern is to assure any prospective student that taking a web based course in the MPA program will be as good or better than what is presented in the traditional classroom setting. This means offering course content of the highest academic quality, courses which are stimulating, interesting, and cost no more than the public tuition rates we charge for our traditional on campus courses.

Our Method of Delivering Online Courses

In each course we provide the online technologies common to online courses almost everywhere

  • Online Syllabi

  • Online Discussion Boards
  • Email Electronic Submission of Homework

Tuition for Online MPA Degree for Out of State Students NOW THE SAME as Ohio Students Pay

Beginning in Fall 2010, the costs of the MPA online degree program for out of state students will be set to the same level as charged to Ohio residents. This totally eliminates any differential that existed up to this semester. Now students from anywhere in the United States may earn the MPA degree by paying the same basic rates as in state students in Ohio. The only additional charge is a processing fee of $30 per course. For the most current in-state graduate rates, please visit the Kent State University Bursar’s website.
