Student Support Services | Kent State University

Student Support Services

Student Support Services are designed to provide services to all students but especially to African and African American students (graduate and undergraduate) in order to assist them in meeting the day-to-day challenges they face at Kent State.  Many services are directed primarily (though not exclusively) at freshmen, since the first year is often the most crucial in determining a student’s academic success.  Services include recruitment and follow-up, orientation, academic and personal counseling, tutoring, advocacy, a textbook loan program, career development, placement assistance and financial advisement.
