Transfer Admission | Kent State University

Transfer Admission

A transfer student is a student who has registered, attended or received financial aid at any college, university, technical or proprietary school since graduating from high school, but has not completed a bachelor's degree.

You are still considered a transfer student even if you don't think your previous credits will transfer to Kent State.

Transfer Application Requirements:

  1. $40 nonrefundable admission fee
  2. Official high school transcript or GED transcripts (unless you have successfully completed 12 or more college-level semester hours).
  3. Official transcripts from every college or university you attended after high school (or after receiving your GED), even if you feel credit will not be transferable. Failure to report previously attended colleges or universities is falsification and may result in denial of admission or dismissal from the university.
  4. ACT or SAT scores, unless 
    you are 21 years of age or older
    you have been out of high school 3 or more years
    you have successfully completed 12 or more college-level semester hours

Official Transcripts
Transcripts are considered official only if they arrive in a sealed letterhead envelope from a high school, college or university. Transcripts issued directly to the student will be accepted only if the envelope is unopened. Once the envelope seal has been broken by someone other than a university employee, the transcript becomes unofficial.
