Kent State University is excited to be a part of the Ohio College Comeback Compact, an innovative program to help students who left college without a degree continue their education. We are providing a path back to higher education and an opportunity for students who had to stop attending school because they owe money to their former college or university to reduce or eliminate their debt.
