Need Help? Get Help.
With resources from academic assistance to health and emergencies, these resources will allow you to get the immediate help and assistance you need at KSU.
See Something, Say Something.
KSU seeks to foster a proactive climate of care that can only be achieved through cooperative input from the entire community. We connect concerns with the resources to succeed and help to prevent crises.
Kennesaw State University includes two main campuses in Cobb County about 20-30 minutes north of Atlanta, GA. No matter where you choose to visit us, we hope you’ll love Kennesaw State University as much as we do.
Advisors assist you in identifying and achieving your academic, career, and personal goals. They provide academic guidance in order to keep you on track for graduation and can help connect you to campus programs and services. You are assigned an academic advisor, or advising center, based on your intended major.
We encourage you to meet with your advisor at least once each semester. Advising is not registration! You should meet with your advisor prior to the date you register for classes so you can discuss the best plan for the upcoming semester and beyond.Academic Advising
How do I find out who my advisor is?
You are assigned an advisor based on your intended major. Exploratory/undecided students are seen by Owl Advising, and students who have a major already identified are seen by the advisors in that department. In many cases, your advisor will be viewable in DegreeWorks. You can find more advising information by visiting https://advising.kennesaw.edu/who.php
How do I know when it’s time to register each semester?
How do I change my major?
What classes are required for my major?
Each major has a specific list of required classes for graduation. Current KSU students should check DegreeWorks for this list.
DegreeWorks is a web-based tool through Banner Web that provides real-time information on degree progression. DegreeWorks lists the courses you are required to take to complete your degree at KSU. This is available to you 24/7.
Login to Owl Express (enter your KSU ID & Pin) Select the Student menu. Select DegreeWorks – Degree Audit.
Your declared major worksheet will automatically load. There is also a “WHAT-IF” tab that gives you an unofficial view of how your credits will apply to a different major. (NOTE: If you officially change your major, you will be moved to the most recent Catalog regardless of when you started classes at KSU.)
DegreeWorks does not replace face to face advising. You should continue to meet with your advisor to discuss degree-related concerns. Prospective students should contact the major department of interest for degree information.
How do I find out about financial aid?
How do I find out about scholarship opportunities?
Your department may be aware of additional scholarships related to your field of study. In addition, the KSU library contains books with information with various scholarships and grants.
Is there someone I can talk to about different career options?
