Families | Kent State University


Dear KSU Families:

Welcome to the Student Success Programs website! We are pleased that you have chosen to send your student to Kent State University. We understand what an important and big decision this was for your family and we appreciate you entrusting us with your student's future.

The Office of Student Success Programs mission can be summed up in three words: transition, persistence, and connection. It is our goal to ensure your student's success by connecting them to the necessary support and resources which will lead to a successful transition from high school to KSU and encourage their persistence from the first year through to graduation.

We would like to partner with you to ensure that these three things happen for your student. Whether you get involved in the First-Year Family Network or stay connected through our monthly newsletter we look forward to partnering with you to ensure your student's success.

If you have questions or would like to speak with us please feel free to contact us via phone at 330-672-9292 or email.

Welcome to the Golden Flash Family!
