Guest Students

You are a guest student if you are enrolled at another institution or wish to take only a limited number of courses at Kent State and are not pursuing a degree.

Undergraduate Guest Students

As an undergraduate guest student, you may attempt no more than 18 semester hours, and you are not eligible for financial aid. If you have previously been denied admission to a degree program at Kent State University, you may not be admitted as a guest student.

After completing courses as a guest student, if you choose to pursue a degree or want to continue beyond the 18-hour credit limit, you will need to apply for regular admission.
