Your Journey Begins Now

Congratulations on officially becoming a part of Owl Nation! We know how stressful enrolling in college can be, and we want to make the process as simple as possible. If you have any questions regarding the enrollment process, you can contact the Admissions Office to speak with a college admissions counselor.

Follow the below steps to ensure you’re ready for Orientation and then the first day of class.

Activate your Net ID

You’ve created a lot of unique logins while applying to universities, but we have good news for you: this is the last one you’ll need for a while! You’ll use your NetID to access Owl Express and complete many of your enrollment tasks. Also, it will be your official login as a student at Kennesaw State. 

ACTIVATE NETID

Activate your DUO account

In addition to activating your NetID, you will need to set up an account with DUO, Kennesaw State University’s multi-factor authentication system. This tool helps keep your information protected as an essential part of creating a secure digital environment.

ACTIVATE DUO

File your FAFSA

Submit the FAFSA and KSU Scholarship Application any time after they open October 1 and November 1, respectively. While KSU offers many opportunities for financial aid and scholarships, be sure to research funding from other sources, as well.
