2010-2011 KSU Award Estimator
The Award Estimator program was designed by the Student Financial Aid Office at Kent State University to provide students and families with an idea of what types of federal, state, and some institutional aid the student may be eligible to receive. We hope this will assist you and your family in estimating your out-of-pocket financial obligations for one academic year at Kent State University.

It is important to remember that this program will only provide you with an estimate of your potential financial aid eligibility and that estimate is based on the 2010-2011 academic year. This is not an application for financial aid and the estimated awards that will be listed at the end are in no way a guarantee or official notification of financial aid. This program assumes that you will apply for federal student aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (available on-line at after January 1, of each year and that you will meet Kent State University's priority processing date of March 1.
