Kent State Waives Application Fees for the Month of November

In an effort to ensure student access and success, Kent State University is waiving application fees for domestic students who apply to the university in the month of November. Students interested in attending Kent State can apply for free until Dec. 1, 2020.

“This is another way we’re removing a barrier to a college education, and we hope those who are interested in pursuing a college degree will explore Kent State and apply,” said Sean Broghammer, Ph.D., associate vice president for enrollment management, admissions. “This fall, we simplified our admissions process and made changes due to the unprecedented challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have made it easier for prospective students to apply to Kent State, and waiving application fees in November is our latest incentive.”

Changes that Kent State has already enacted with its admissions process include:

  • Waiving ACT/SAT standardized test requirements, recognizing that testing was canceled in many locations leaving students unable to take the test.
  • Utilizing a more holistic approach to determine student admissions.

All applicants are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. This opportunity does not apply to international student applications.
