At this point, your registration window will no longer be active. You will need to go through the process of applying as a Guest Student. It's likely that you will be assigned the same FlashLine ID as the registration system will recognize that it has you on file.
There is no penalty. Guest Student admissions are temporary, one-semester admissions.
If you do not register during that semester your admission status will become inactive and, if you wish to attend at a later date, you will need to complete the Guest Student application process again.
Contact the Admissions Office and let them know you wish to change your start date from Fall to Summer. You may need to speak with your advisor as well. If you have not yet been assigned an advisor or participated in Destination Kent State, you can contact 330-672-2014 or email@example.com.
*For the summer term, both undergraduate and graduate students are able to register for a maximum of 6 credit hours in a five-week summer session; maximum 10 hours in an eight-week summer session; maximum 10 hours in overlapping summer sessions; or maximum 12 hours for all summer sessions combined, including summer intersession.
You will need to contact the academic department and establish that you have met the prerequisite(s) at your home institution. If you simply try to register, without getting departmental approval, the registration system will block you from doing so as it can only see courses you have taken at Kent State. We can provide you with departmental contact information.
If you simply want to take a class or classes online, you would follow the process described above for applying as a guest student. Then you will be free to select either face-to-face or online courses.
You will need to check with the faculty member or academic department to be certain. However, many faculty now use a service that allows for remote proctoring as long as students have a computer with a web cam.

But it is up to your home institution to determine if they will accept the credits.
