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.
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.
