Student Financial Aid
Stark Campus: 003054
Kent Campus: 003051
Posted May 27, 2020: The refunding process has been delayed until June 1 (tentatively) due to Kent State's Pass/Fail request processing deadline for the Spring 2020 semester. The Pass/Fail request allows Kent State to accommodate the needs of our students as a result of COVID-19. These requests must all be reviewed and processed before Summer 2020 financial aid can be released to student accounts. Please continue to monitor your FlashLine account (Student > Finances > Tuition & Payment > My Student Account Detail) to verify when your financial aid has been applied and if a refund has been issued.
Using grants, loans or work-study during the summer could reduce your fall and spring financial aid.
All enrolled students who are eligible for grants (Pell, TEACH, OCOG, PHEAA) will be awarded a semester of eligibility during the summer. Summer grants will be awarded based on your registered hours at the time your application is processed.
Students who indicate they would like to use a loan in summer will be awarded 1/3 of their annual loan eligibility for the summer term. The remaining 2/3 will be awarded during the fall and spring semesters.
Guest students interested in using aid for the summer must contact their home institution for financial aid processing and awarding. Kent State does not process financial aid for guest students.
