Beginning with the fall 2018 academic year, Kent State began to offer all eligible new first-year and transfer undergraduate students the certainty that the Ohio resident tuition rate (i.e., instructional and general fee) career services fee, as well as room and board plan charges would not increase for their applicable cohort rate.
