Use of the KSU Logo

Reproducing the KSU Logo

Size recommendations
The logo is intended as a visual identifier, not a title block, and should be scaled as such. In general publication usage, the logo should appear no smaller than 1 inch. The preferred size for the logo is 2 inches wide on most publications.

Student organizations
Registered student organizations (RSO) may represent themselves as agents of the university and use names, official logos or symbols of the university with the written consent of University Relations. Requests and artwork must be submitted for approval to University Relations at designapproval@kennesaw.edu. Approval must be received prior to printing, manufacturing and distributing.

To assist in the approval process, the RSO must submit a copy of its current logo at the time it applies for registration or renewal. Requests or artwork that do not reflect the logo on file will not be approved.

Student organizations are not permitted to use the university’s official seal.

Publication, print media and Web use
Use of the university’s logo must be reviewed by University Relations. Please submit approval requests to designapproval@kennesaw.edu.

Exemptions For Design Approval
Design approval is not required for academic materials produced for scholarly presentation (e.g., peer-reviewed articles, poster presentations, oral presentations, PowerPoint presentations, etc.).

For publications and materials of this nature that employ the university’s logo, the author/creator is asked to comply fully with the university’s visual identity standards by following the logo usage guidelines as outlined in the Official Logo Policy.

All materials that fall outside of this academic/scholarly work exemption should be submitted to designapproval@kennesaw.edu.

Resale and other commercial use of university logos
Student organizations must request and obtain approval to use the university’s names, logos or symbols on commercial goods and specialty items. Registered student organizations may represent themselves as agents of the university and use names, official logos or symbols of the university with the written consent of University Relations. Requests and artwork must be submitted for approval to University Relations at designapproval@kennesaw.edu.

Approval must be received prior to printing, manufacturing and distributing materials. Any use of logos, seals, names or other university marks must be in accordance with policies established by the university. The official logo or seal is not permitted for personal use, e.g., graduation invitations, personal business cards, etc.

Individual students
Students representing themselves are not permitted to use the university’s official logo or other university trademarks. Exceptions to this policy are granted in a limited number of special situations. For example, the official logo may be used for class projects and for university-approved conference and presentation materials. To be considered for such an exception, submit a request to logos@kennesaw.edu. Should permission be granted, all materials utilizing the logos, names or other university marks should be submitted to designapproval@kennesaw.edu prior to use.

Approval must be received prior to printing, manufacturing or distributing. Any use of logos, seals, names or other university marks must be in accordance with policies established by the university. The logo or seal may not be used for personal use, e.g. graduation invitations, personal business cards, etc.

Web usage
University names, the official logo and other university trademarks are restricted to official university use only. Personal Web pages are not permitted to display the official logo or university trademarks. Nor may such pages use the university’s name in a manner that would lead the Web reader to perceive that the Web page is an official university page.

Resale and other commercial use of university logos
Student or personal use of university trademarks on T-shirts, baseball hats, bumper stickers and other specialty items is prohibited without prior approval by University Relations at designapproval@kennesaw.edu. Approval is granted in strictly limited situations.

The University official logo is available for download. For approval to use any college-specific logos, other university marks and the seal, submit requests to logos@kennesaw.edu.
