Continuing Study Courses & Workshops Admissions

Professionals in the information industry are invited to take individual courses and workshops that will advance their skills in a particular area.


Kent State University offers you two options to take individual courses for self-improvement, intellectual curiosity or professional development, without obtaining a degree. Both options require a bachelor's degree or equivalent from an accredited institution:

  • Guest students can take up to six (6) semester hours of graduate-level courses.
  • Non-degree students can take up to twelve (12) semester hours of graduate-level courses.

For specific requirements and application details for these two categories, visit,

Note: Enrollment in some courses is restricted to current students only. Check the course description in the Graduate Catalog or email to find out if a course of interest is restricted.


Workshops offer you an opportunity to study select topics in depth, whether to refresh their skills or to learn new ones.

  • Non-students: If you are not currently registered for courses at Kent State, contact the Office of Continuing and Distance Education at 330-672-3100 to register for workshops.
  • Current students: Consult the Workshop-Course Overlap List before registering for a workshop. Up to four (4) workshop credits may be counted toward the degree. Register for workshops in FlashLine, in the same way you register for courses.
