In an email Monday morning, Kent State announced its refund policy and procedure for parking, room and meal plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Parking and residence hall fees will be refunded on a prorated basis. Meal plans with remaining all-you-care-to-eat swipes will be refunded for the value of those swipes. Meal plans with remaining declining balance will carry over to the fall 2020 semester.

Graduating seniors will receive a refund for the value of their all-you-care-to-eat swipes and declining balances.

All refunds will be issued by April 30.

If you have questions regarding refunds, please call the university One Stop at 330-672-6000.
