KSU Ashtabula — quality education, affordable price


For more than 60 years, Kent State University at Ashtabula has provided quality education at affordable prices for thousands of professionals throughout Northeastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.
As the school embarks on its seventh decade, Kent State Ashtabula is uniquely placed to meet the needs and desires of students to face the challenges of a changing workforce and a changing world.
"We are our community's university, which means that we educate our communities through open access to an affordable world-class tier-1 research university," said Dean and Chief Administrative Officer Dr. Susan J. Stocker. "We develop a talented workforce through both associate and bachelor's degree attainment, who contribute to the economic vitality of our communities and beyond."
It starts with academic programs in in-demand career fields. Renowned allied health programs – nursing, respiratory therapy, radiologic technology, physical therapist assistant and occupational therapy assistant – are training students for jobs in the competitive health and wellness industry while teaching them to be compassionate and reliable caregivers.
The work Kent State Ashtabula students put into their studies and clinicals is evident by their success in their field — 100% of the most recent respiratory therapy graduating class was hired into the field before graduation and our nursing students are highly sought after because they outperform state averages on the professional entry exams.
The 21st century has seen a boom in the information technology and cyber security sectors, and Kent State Ashtabula graduates are leading the way at companies like BlueBridge Networks, Chromaflo, CMIT Solutions, Erie Insurance, ID Networks, Progressive, NBC Universal, Sherwin Williams, STERIS and healthcare networks like University Hospitals, the Cleveland Clinic, UPMC and more.
Kent State Ashtabula also has innovative programs — with degrees and certificates in viticulture (grape growing), enology (wine making) and hospitality management — aimed at meeting the needs of blossoming wine and tourism industries.
Kent State Ashtabula's wine degree programs are the only ones in Ohio and include a partnership with Laurello Vineyards that allows students to participate in the entire process of the school's own labeled wines. Hospitality Management students and graduates are working at facilities across the region and in five-star resorts and with professional sports teams and organizations all over the world.
Additionally, students can start one of more than 340 degree programs offered throughout the Kent State system to later transfer to a campus sponsoring that degree.
