Take Advantage of our
Free Application Week

Untitled design (2)

Kent State's Office of Graduate Admissions is offering a free application week for prospective domestic graduate students, Jan. 14-24. If you submit your application during this time, the application fee will be automatically waived. No special code is required. 

Applying is simple! You don’t need to provide all your application materials (e.g., transcripts, letters of recommendation, goal statement) when you submit your application. You will retain access to your application portal where you can upload new documents, replace previously submitted documents and check the status of your application.

So if you're a prospective student from the U.S., make sure to submit your app between Jan. 14-24 to qualify for the app fee waiver!*

*Note: The Office of Global Education is not participating in Free Application Week due to the increase in international applications. Application fee waivers for prospective international students will be evaluated on an individual basis.
