TALK WITH AN ACADEMIC ADVISOR

Kent State Stark academic advisors continue to conduct advising appointments over the phone during the fall semester. When you schedule your advising appointment online, be sure to add your phone number to the advising note so your advisor can contact you.

Freshmen and sophomores should meet with an advisor once per semester. Juniors and seniors are required to meet with an advisor once per year. 

  • New students must be admitted and have taken any required placement tests before talking with an advisor.
  • College Credit Plus students should schedule appointments with their advisors here.
  • New freshmen (recent high school graduates) are required to attend First Step, our first year advising and registration program. Do not make an appointment with an advisor. View First Step instructions.
