Orientation 2022
Steps to Your Future
Steps to Your Future is an e-newsletter designed to inform the Class of 2026 of any news or updates related to your class and/or the College.

As you will read about below, KSUCPM has developed a website specifically for the Class of 2026. Updates will be shared on that website. The e-newsletter will supplement the website.

Welcome to Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine!
"One Stop Shop" Website for Class of 2026
We will continue to update the website for any pertinent information relative to orientation or information you may need as you begin classes at KSUCPM.
As you review the website, you will find items necessary to complete prior to orientation.
These items include, but are not limited to:


DUE: July 26, 2022 (We will review at orientation)

The College has reached out to students missing any of the checklist items. It is critical that you submit any outstanding items as soon as possible so we can complete your file so it can be transferred to the Academic Offices.
