Degree Completion Office Launched
The University Degree Completion Office helps students who have stopped out, complete their bachelor’s degree in a convenient and flexible manner. Eligible students must have:
- Completed 90 credit hours or more at any KSU campus
- Earned at least a 2.0 or higher GPA
- Stopped attending Kent State University for at least two years
Students must choose to earn a degree in either the Bachelor of Integrative Studies or the Bachelor of Science in Educational Studies. An office has been established within Undergraduate Studies to recruit students and work with them on completing their degree.
For the 10th time, Kent State University is being recognized as a “Great College to Work For,” according to the latest survey by the Great Colleges to Work For program. The program recognizes the colleges that get top ratings from their employees regarding workplace practices and policies.
The U.S. Department of Education has awarded Kent State University a nearly $1.2 million, five-year TRIO Educational Opportunity Centers program grant. The program is designed to provide support services to qualified adults, including veterans, who want to enter or continue a program of postsecondary education.
Kent State University Senior Vice President and Provost Melody Tankersley, Ph.D., announced the selection of Manfred van Dulmen, Ph.D., to serve as the university’s associate provost for academic affairs and dean of the Division of Graduate Studies, effective April 16.
