A guest student, also known as visiting or transient student at some institutions, may be defined as either:

  • A student enrolled at another institution who wishes to take courses at Kent State University. These students typically take classes at Kent State for one semester or over the summer and then return to their home institution.
  • A student who wants to take a limited number of courses for credit (maximum 18 credit hours) for personal enrichment and has no interest in pursuing a degree.



Apply as a Post-Undergraduate Student Check Application Status

You have received a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university (this includes students who attended another college after graduating from Kent State) and wish to take additional undergraduate courses. There are two types of post-undergraduate students:

  • Degree-seeking: Individuals interested in seeking an additional bachelor’s degree.
  • Non–degree-seeking: Individuals just interested in taking additional undergraduate coursework.


You would like to take classes for select degrees offered fully online. Students may complete undergraduate university requirements and Kent Core courses at Kent State University at Trumbull or any campus/location, and the major requirements online. The degree would be awarded by the approved campus or college. Additional fees are assessed for online courses.
