Fall/Spring Costs

Students are responsible for paying Kent State University tuition costs plus a non-refundable, non-transferable program fee.

Tuition is determined by a student’s in-state or out-of-state tuition status. Because students are required to take 12 credit hours per semester, a flat tuition rate applies to fall and spring semester costs when students enroll for 11-16 semester hours. For more detailed information, please refer to the Kent State University tuition details on the Admissions website.

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

Weekly food costs $30 $300 $92
