Admissions & Advising Staff

Kent State Trumbull advisors look forward to helping you achieve your academic goals! 

Did you know that students who work with an advisor increase their chances of success in completing an academic degree? Advisors can assist you with academic planning, and help you navigate a successful pathway to graduation!

Advisors are available by appointment, or on a walk-in basis during scheduled hours. Kent Trumbull also hosts academic advisors from other Kent State campuses to support students who are enrolled in select bachelor's degree programs, or who will complete their degree at another campus.

Remember, all undergraduate students are required to meet with an advisor once per semester!

Advantages To Finishing Your Degree on Time:
  • Academic Success
    Full-time students who take 15 credit hours per semester consistently have a higher GPA than those who take fewer than 15.
  • Saving Money
    By graduating in four years (8 semesters), instead of six, you could save more than $58,000* in expenses.
  • Summers Off
    If you're taking 15 credit hours per semester, you won't need to take summer classes to stay on track. Instead, you can get a summer job, pursue internships, study abroad, or go on vacation.
  • Getting a Head Start on Your Career
    The sooner you graduate, the sooner you can begin an advanced degree or start working full time in your career field.

*Based on a 120-credit hour degree program with standard Kent Campus tuition and fees, books/supplies, Kent Campus room, and board, transportation, and personal expenses over a four-year period.
