About OFF-CAMPUS Cohorts

Kent State University works in partnership with school districts to facilitate off-campus professional development programming for educators in the field.  Off-campus cohorts offer reduced graduate tuition for courses instructed at a convenient location within the district.  Generally, two courses are offered per term, allowing the Gifted Intervention Specialist Endorsement to be completed in approximately one year.
