Next Steps for International Students
Dear International Students,
As you know from our previous communications, Kent State University is aware of the most recent guidance issued by the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) and its potential impacts on our international student community. We strongly encourage you to contact your academic advisor or program coordinator by July 15 to discuss what face-to-face options are available for your fall schedule.
Our university community values our international students and their success. Kent State is committed to providing access to a high-quality education for all of its students and assisting you with the resources you need to maintain your F-1 student visa as we enter the 2020 Fall Semester.
You can find information about how to contact your academic advisor or program coordinator in your FlashLine account or by following these instructions: www.kent.edu/flashline/news/how-can-i-find-out-who-my-advisor.
