Prospective Students FAQs
SUMMER AND FALL REGISTRATION: Should I register for summer and fall courses?Yes. Registration for Summer and Fall 2020 courses are open and you can register, based on the time-ticket assigned to you.
MAY/SUMMER COURSES: Will classes for Maymester and Summer be online or in person?
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. There are no changes to the many classes previously scheduled for online summer instruction. Additional information and resources can be found here.
