Students transferring from another institution should confirm that all official transcripts of their college work have been sent directly to the Kent State University Admissions Office.
Student should then schedule an advising appointment with the School of Art Academic Advisor, Maria Robertson, bringing an unofficial transcript and any other paperwork relevant to work completed outside of Kent State University. A portfolio review with faculty may also be needed to determine where, in the sequence of foundation courses, the student has already met articulated goals and where further coursework should begin.
During each semester and over the summer, regular walk-in advising times in the School are offered to assist you in learning about transfer possibilities. Check information on our advising page for details on how to schedule an appointment.
