For the rest of the academic year, Kent State's Office of Graduate Admissions is offering free applications for domestic students planning to start school in Spring, Summer or Fall 2021. If you submit your application during this time, the application fee will be automatically waived. No special code is required. 

Don't have an application started? The good news is that you do not need to provide all your application requirements (e.g., transcripts, letters of recommendation, goal statement) when you submit your application. You will retain access to your application portal where you can check the status of your application, upload new documents, or replace previously submitted documents.
