In light of the university's decision to limit staff on campus, advisors are available by email and remote advising appointments. Kent State's coronavirus information page.


Our goal is to promote student success by creating an on-going partnership between students and advisors.  Academic advisors provide knowledge regarding degree requirements, campus resources to assist students in understanding the value of their degree and education. 

In order to better support the success of our students, we have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions.
