Summer Financial Aid

2017 Summer Financial Aid 

Before applying for summer aid, be sure you understand:

  • Using grants, loans or work-study during the summer will reduce your fall and spring financial aid. 
  • You may want to speak with a member of the financial aid staff to see how your future aid may be affected.

Guest Students Attending Kent State
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.
