We're Here to Help

Kent State is committed to supporting Eastern Gateway Community College (EGCC) students during this challenging time. We recognize the difficulty that students face when transitioning from one campus to another and we want to make this process as smooth as we can.

  • Kent State has had an active partnership with EGCC since 2018.
  • We are proactively working to help maximize the transferability of credits.

  • No application fee is required.
  • KSU will provide an expedited review of transcripts for credit evaluation.
  • Guaranteed admission with 2.5 GPA; consideration above 2.0 for Kent Campus applicants. Guaranteed admission at Regional Campuses regardless of GPA.
