1. What are my next steps after being accepted?
You will need to set up your student email and your Owl Express accounts as instructed in the email you received from Graduate Admissions, as well as satisfy any holds that you may have on your account. Additionally, if you are seeking to utilize financial aid or wish to set up a payment plan, you will need to contact The Office of Financial Aid or begin setting up your account to establish the Nelnet Payment Plan. You will also begin receiving an uptick in communication from KSU, as well as from Angelia Huggins with the Georgia WebMBA Administration as to items you will need to complete leading up to attendance at the mandatory, two-day orientation held in Atlanta. You will also need to ensure you are paying your $800 Orientation fee by the deadlines outlined by the WebMBA Administration and communicated to you through the KSUMBA Team.

It is expected that all of these modules be completed prior to attending orientation.
