Fee-Waiver For ACT Residual

Students seeking admission into the College Credit Plus program must first demonstrate college readiness by meeting the College Credit Plus Eligibility Standards. Once a student is CCP eligible they then must meet Kent State’s admissions standards. The Kent State University Kent Campus determines college readiness in part by using ACT or SAT scores. 

College Credit Plus applicants who have never completed an ACT or SAT assessment or who have not completed an ACT or SAT assessment within the past year that demonstrates CCP eligibility can choose to complete the College Credit Plus ACT Residual Fee Waiver Form. See Ohio Revised Code 3365.03 (E).

The following deadlines and test administration dates apply.
