Summer semester instruction will be fully online

KENNESAW, Ga. | Apr 2, 2020

Kennesaw State University, under guidance from the University System of Georgia (USG), will transition the upcoming summer term from in-person classes to fully online instruction. This decision has been made in response to the public health emergency related to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

All May and summer semester instruction will be delivered remotely, and Kennesaw State will return to normal operations for the fall semester assuming health conditions allow for it.

KSU has been preparing for the possibility of a summer of fully online instruction. As a result, we are confident that more than 90% of our in-person classes will simply be converted to online instruction for the summer. This announcement does not affect courses that are already scheduled to be taught online.

All revised summer offerings, including those that will transition to online instruction, will be available for students to review at 5 p.m. on Monday, April 6. Students who need to add or adjust summer classes should log into Owl Express.

Any off-campus, credit-bearing courses, like internships, will follow standard procedures pending the needs and any special requirements determined by our external partners.

We encourage all students to consider summer enrollment. Summer courses enable students to continue their academic progress and are often linked to faster graduation rates.

Students who are enrolled in summer courses and have questions regarding financial aid can email the Office of Financial Aid (, call 770-423-6074, or check for additional information here.

Billing information for summer tuition and fees will be adjusted to reflect fully online learning at KSU. Students who have billing questions should contact the Office of the Bursar at 470-578-6419 or visit the website here.

We remain committed to providing all students with an outstanding education at KSU.
