Registration FAQ

How many credit hours can I register for during Summer Sessions?

You can register for up to 12 undergraduate credit hours*.

If you wish to register for more than 12 credit hours, and are a:

  • Kent State student: contact your advisor to request approval
  • Guest student: contact the Exploratory Advising Center at 330-672-3676 to request approval. 

*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. 

I am not able to access the Schedule of Classes.
What if the course I am interested in has a prerequisite?

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. 

What is the last day I can drop a class and still get a full refund?

The drop/refund dates are based on the dates of a particular class section. To see the drop/refund dates for a given class, select the Registration Deadlines link in the Schedule of Classes. 

For example: This will bring up the information on registration, drop, and refund deadlines for that section.
