First Step

First Step: First Year Advising & Registration


First Step is Kent State University at Stark's first year advising and
registration program. It's how new first year students register for
fall classes.


First Step is required for all new first year students age 20 and younger who will
begin at Kent State Stark in the fall (or summer).

You will receive an invitation to First Step at your home address after you have
been admitted.


Make Your Reservation to Attend First Step


Before you can attend First Step, you must first take any required placement
assessments checked on your First Step invitation letter.

Did you complete all of your required placement assessments?

Yes, take me to the reservation form!   Have your Kent State ID number and
   email ready. You will need them to make
   your First Step reservation.



No, I need to take my assessments first.   You will be given instructions on how
   to complete your required placement
   assessments.
