Learning Centers

Students entering Kent State University come from a wide variety of educational and lifestyle traditions.

Students include those who are recent high school graduates continuing their education without interruption, those who have been working for a while and still others who are returning after an absence. Regardless of when a person decides to begin a college education, each student needs basic academic skills to succeed at the university.


Kent State recognizes that some students may need to improve their skills in certain subjects during their first semester or first year in order to be most successful in college. In addition, a variety of academic support connections are available to students as they progress through each semester of college.

At Kent State Columbiana campuses we have many services that are available to you located within the Academic Learning Centers including tutoring and testing accommodations. Various tutoring assistance is available in the Lang Learning Loft in East Liverpool and the Learning Center at Salem as well as the Columbiana Campus Writing Center
