Associate Degrees

Kent State University’s seven Regional Campuses will begin automatically awarding associate degrees to bachelor’s degree-seeking students who have completed all requirements for either an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree.

“They earned it, so we’re awarding the degree,” said Wanda Thomas, associate provost and dean of the Regional College. “Awarding an associate degree as soon as it is earned ensures that a Kent State regional student will have a college degree, even if something happens and they are unable to complete their bachelor’s degree program.”

Kent State University held its summer Commencement ceremonies at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 16, at the Memorial Athletic and Convocation Center (MAC Center). Kent State conferred 1,636 degrees, including 851 bachelor’s degrees, 462 master’s degrees, 74 doctoral degrees, 227 associate degrees and 22 educational specialist degrees.
