I need to depart before the semester begins, would I be able to obtain my refund early?

No, your financial aid can be applied to your Bursar account no earlier than 10 days prior to the first day of class at Kent State. It may take several days after the funds transfer for you to receive any excess funds in the form of a refund. It is highly recommended that you select a refund preference before leaving the country. It is also suggested that you have 2-3 weeks of funds available so that you are able to cover the first few weeks of living expenses before you receive a refund. For further questions regarding refunds, please contact the One Stop for Student Services at 330-672-6000.
