KENT, Ohio — Kent State University is waiving application fees for applicants throughout November.
The university said that the decision to waive application fees came in an effort to ensure student access and success.
Students interested in applying to Kent State can apply for free until Dec. 1.
Other changes Kent State has enacted with its admissions processes include waiving ACT/SAT standardized test requirements due to testing being canceled in many locations and taking a “holistic approach” to determine student admissions.
“This is another way we’re removing a barrier to a college education, and we hope those who are interested in pursuing a college degree will explore Kent State and apply,” said Sean Broghammer, Ph.D., associate vice president for enrollment management, admissions. “This fall, we simplified our admissions process and made changes due to the unprecedented challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have made it easier for prospective students to apply to Kent State, and waiving application fees in November is our latest incentive.”
