How soon should I contact the Student Financial Aid office to discuss paying for my study abroad program?

The sooner the better! It is recommended that you make contact at least one full semester prior to your study abroad program start date. You will be working directly with Alana Thompson, the Education Abroad Counselor. E-mail Alana directly to set up an appointment. You will want to provide your Kent State ID, times you will be available to meet, the program name, and the semester you will be away. It is never too early to start planning and saving for your study abroad program.
