In those cases where a student is taking 12-18 hours a attending a Regional Campus and the Kent Campus concurrently, the cohort rate will be assessed individually for each campus.  These individual tuition assessments added together will not exceed the Kent Campus cohort rate capped at between 12-18 credit hours during fall and spring terms.  The rate for summer terms are not capped at the full-time tuition rate between 12-18 credit hours.  Instead, the summer guarantee rate is based on the guaranteed cohort per-credit-hour rate.    

1 The general fee is mainly used to support student services and operations.  Examples include recreation services, athletics, student center, transportation services, and student organizations.  There's also a component that provides funding for facilities needs and for investment in off campus and distance learning.  Allocations of the general fee revenues are part of the University's annual budget building process.      

2 A flat rate applies to students taking between 12-18 credit hours. An additional $483.00 per credit hour is assessed for each credit hour enrolled above 18.

3 18/19 Non-Ohio Resident Surcharge. This rate is subject to change for Fall 2019.
