KENT -- Kent State University students held a student-led protest in front of the KSU library in response to a new credit hour cap policy the school's administration is trying to implement.

Kent State student William Liptak II said students were shocked when they learned the administration would be implementing a new "credit hour cap" policy.

Under the new policy, a student who takes over 17 credit hours a semester would be charged a $440 fee per credit hour rather than per class.

Some view it as part of the evolutionary process for a university due to economic constraints.

Students gathered 3,500 signatures via an online petition. A physical petition on campus has also received over 1,500 signatures.
