Important Information Regarding Fall 2016 Midterm Grading for All Lower-division Undergraduate Courses

Online midterm grading for all fall 2016 lower-division undergraduate courses (levels 00000, 10000, 20000) meeting in the full term (Aug. 29 through Dec. 11) begins Sept. 19 via FlashFAST. Please remember that midterm grading applies ONLY to courses that meet for the full semester.

The Kent State University Board of Trustees today established a comprehensive, national search to recruit and select the university’s 13th president.


The events of May 4, 1970, placed Kent State University in an international spotlight after a student protest against the Vietnam War and the presence of the Ohio National Guard ended in tragedy with four students losing their lives and nine others being wounded. From a perspective of nearly 50 years, Kent State remembers the tragedy and leads a contemporary discussion and understanding of how the community, nation and world can benefit from understanding the profound impact of the event.
