Applying for financial aid is not a difficult process but can feel overwhelming if you are applying for aid for the first time. At Kent State University, one form is all that is necessary to apply for financial aid.
If you are a new student, you must first Apply for Admission
in order to be considered for financial aid at Kent State Stark.
Submit the FAFSA
(Free Application for Federal Financial Aid) online. By completing the FAFSA, you will be considered for both state (Ohio College Opportunity Grant) and federal grants, loans, work-study programs and, in some cases, scholarships.
Submit the FAFSA as soon after January 1 as possible.
Kent State recommends having your FAFSA filed no later than February 1 for priority consideration.
You can use income estimates if you have not yet completed your taxes. Even if you feel you may not qualify for financial aid, we suggest that you apply. Help may be available.
If you need assistance completing the FAFSA, do not hesitate to contact our office for help.
Be sure to list Kent State Stark as one of your school choices on your FAFSA.
