Program Costs

Summer Costs

The cost of the program will depend on your in-state (Ohio resident), out-of-state (all others), or international tuition status and be calculated per credit hour. You are required to take at least 6 credit hours, but can register for up to 12 credits during summer. For more detailed information, please refer to the Kent State University tuition details on the Admissions website.

There is also a non-refundable, non-transferable program fee of $1,500 USD for the summer term. In addition, you should budget for such expenses as food, personal spending, incidentals and all travel-related expenses, which are not included in your tuition and program fee.

If you are a current Kent State Student, you will be responsible for paying Kent State University tuition costs plus the non-refundable, non-transferable program fee.

Fall & Spring Costs

The cost of the program will depend on your in-state (Ohio resident), out-of-state (all others), or international tuition status. Because you are required to take 12 credit hours per semester, a flat tuition rate applies to spring and fall semester costs when you enroll for 11-16 semester hours. For more detailed information, please refer to the Kent State University tuition details on the Admissions website.

There is also a non-refundable, non-transferable program fee of $2,000 USD for the spring and fall semesters. In addition, you should budget for such expenses as food, personal spending, incidentals, and all travel-related expenses, which are not included in your tuition and program fee.
