Financial Aid

When transferring, it is important to add the Kent State Tuscarawas school code (003062) to the FAFSA and notify your current school to cancel all financial aid for any upcoming semesters. This allows you to receive a financial aid offer from Kent State. Our financial aid staff is happy to talk with you to make sure your financial aid is in order.
