Frequently Asked Questions


If you are a former Kent State University student or graduate who has not attended another college or university since you were previously enrolled, you do not need to reapply.

The Application for Undergraduate Reenrollment is for use by students who have previously attended Kent State University as an undergraduate student, and would like to return as an undergraduate student. If you have ever been convicted of a criminal offense other than a minor traffic violation you will also need to submit a Personal Explanation Statement. If you have ever been dismissed, suspended, or placed on probation by any other higher education institution for a non-academic reason you will also need to submit a Personal Explanation Statement.

If you wish to be reinstated at Kent State University after being academically dismissed, you do not need to reapply for admission. Rather, application for reinstatement after the required period of time away from the university should be submitted to the dean of the college or Regional Campus that houses the major program the student wishes to enter. (This is not necessarily the college from which the student was dismissed.)
