Applying For Aid

 The decision on what college or university to attend is one of the most important decisions that a person makes. The way to pay for that education is often the deciding factor on what school to attend. This page is designed to provide you with all the materials that you will need to apply for Federal Financial Aid at Kent State University.
NOTE: The priority processing deadline for the Kent State Student Financial Aid Office is March 1.


Step 1

Federal School Codes

Kent Campus


Ashtabula Campus


East Liverpool Campus


Geauga Campus


Salem Campus


Stark Campus


Trumbull Campus


Tuscarawas Campus


Make sure you use the proper Title IV School Code of 003051 for all students at Kent State University. If you will be attending one of our Regional Campuses, include only the school code that corresponds to the Regional Campus you wish to attend.

You may contact the Student Financial Aid Office at any time by various means with any questions:
Phone 330-672-2972

Step 2 (for entering students)

  • Contact the Kent State University Office of Admissions to make sure you have applied and been accepted to attend Kent State University.
Phone 1-800-988-KENT or 330-672-2444

Step 3 (for students taking summer classes)

  • Students who wish to apply some of their aid to the Summer terms at Kent State University will need to submit a Summer Aid Application available to students in January of every year through this website here.

That's it! Once you have been admitted to Kent State University and Kent receives your application information from the Federal Government, you will receive a Notification of Financial Aid (Award Letter) in March or April from the Student Financial Aid Office notifying you of your aid.
