Priority Admissions Application Deadline

Kent State University at Tuscarawas has established February 1 as the priority admissions application deadline, which positions applicants for earlier scholarship consideration. The date has been moved up from March 1.

“Moving the admissions application deadline forward allows us to award scholarships and financial aid earlier in the admission process,” said Courtney Nign, assistant director for Enrollment Management and Student Services. “This helps students and their families to be more informed about the actual cost of college so they can choose the school that best meets their needs. In addition, the university’s admission application fee of $45 is waived during the months of November and December if the application is completed online.”
