First Step: Placement Assessment Instructions

Before making a reservation for First Step, you may be required to complete placement assessments as instructed in your First Step invitation letter.

When are First Step invitations sent?
You will receive your invitation letter to First Step shortly after you receive your acceptance letter from Kent State University at Stark. (Invitations are being sent the first week of March for students who have already been admitted.)

If you received an invitation to First Step, but can't find it, contact Bobbi Groves at 330-244-3244 to have a new letter sent to you. This letter will identify which placement assessments are required of you.
