Kent State Implements Forever Buckeyes Program for Ohio High School GraduatesPosted Oct. 24, 2011
Kent State University President Lester A. Lefton has announced that the university will adopt the Forever Buckeyes program, established by the Ohio Board of Regents and the State of Ohio, beginning this Fall 2011 Semester.
The Forever Buckeyes program is a residency provision that extends the in-state resident tuition rate to any Ohio high school graduate who left the state but returns to enroll in an Ohio public institution of higher education and establishes a primary residence in the state.
“At Kent State, we see the need to make education more affordable and within reach of our students,” Lefton says. “By adopting the Forever Buckeyes program this fall, we want to help students in this category stay focused on the path to graduation and encourage future Kent State students by eliminating financial barriers to achieving excellent quality higher education.”
The new law became effective in September after most Ohio public universities had already determined students’ residency for fall 2011, but Kent State has chosen to move forward with implementation to begin benefiting students immediately.
