The Senior Guest Program at Kent State University enables persons, 60 years of age or older to audit Kent State courses on a tuition-free, space-available basis. Office of Continuing Education will contact faculty/department and notify you about whether your course request is approved or denied. Senior Guests do not receive grades and no credit is awarded. Senior Guests may request to enroll in 1 – 2 courses per semester, during a designated enrollment period. In all cases, the faculty member’s decision is final.
Yes. The Senior Guest program administrator contacts the course faculty member(s) and notifies the Senior Guest about whether the course request has been approved or denied. In all cases, the faculty member’s decision is final.
Senior guests are responsible for payment of fees associated with a course in which they are registered. These fees include, but are not limited to, the cost of lab supplies, materials and distance learning (DL) fee, Flash Book charges, parking permits, etc.
No. But it is important to check if there is Flash Book connected with a course. If you do not wish to accept the Flash Book (and associated charge) you must formally opt-out during the required time period or you will be charged for its use.
Flash Books are electronic versions of textbooks provided in lieu of a traditional paper copy of the book. Flash Book content is provided to students (including Senior Guests) as soon as the course is made available via Blackboard. If you do not wish to accept the Flash Book, there is a designated time period during which you may formally opt-out.
