GPA/Application deadline: Students who have attended any educational institution after graduating from high school must apply as a transfer student.
Generally, a transfer applicant who has taken 12 or more semester hours with a college cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale may be admitted. An applicant who has taken fewer than 12 semester hours will be evaluated on both collegiate and high school records.
Transfer applications are processed on a rolling basis. However, early application helps to ensure early consideration for class registration, residence hall preferences and financial aid. Therefore, the best time to apply is at least six months prior to the term you wish to enter Kent State.
Required transcripts/materials: Submit official transcripts from every college or university you have attended, even if you feel credit will not be transferable.
Applicants with fewer than 12 semester hours of college coursework should also submit an official high school transcript including ACT or SAT scores. Some regional campuses may have additional requirements, please contact your admitting unit. Be aware of any special admission requirements for your major.
