MARIETTA, Ga. (Nov 19, 2018) — Kennesaw State University’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions has planned a special day – Saturday, Dec. 1 – for prospective students and their families at the University’s Marietta Campus.

Undergraduate Admissions deadline, Dec. 1

KSU’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions also has set a Dec. 1 deadline for spring semester applications.

“We now have a single Dec. 1 application deadline for the spring semester to make it easier for prospective Kennesaw State students,” said Sam Mahra, interim senior director of admissions. “Previously, there were various deadlines for different types of prospective students – transfer, adult learner, non-degree seeking and readmission – so having one date late in the year gives students more time and definitely makes the deadline for spring semester easier to remember.”

All prospective students who are freshman and transfer freshman, dual enrollment, transfer, adult learner, transient, non-degree seeking, audit and readmission may apply prior to the Dec. 1 deadline to be considered for the spring semester. All admissions documentation will be required by the deadline.

Transfer and Adult Learner Students

Transfer and Adult Learner Document Drop-Off Day is an event for transfer students and adult learners to bring required admissions documents – such as official college and high school transcripts, immunization records and lawful presence verification – to Kennesaw State to finalize the application process for spring 2019 enrollment. Admissions counselors will be on hand at the Joe Mack Wilson Student Center to help prospective students and answer questions about the University.

Transfer students who have earned 30 or more credit hours from an accredited college or university, or adult learners who graduated from high school more than five years ago or have earned less than 30 hours of transferable college credit are invited to attend.

Kennesaw State University is the top destination in Georgia for students who transfer from other colleges, according to rankings by U.S. News & World Report.

In fall 2017, the timeframe utilized for last month’s report, 2,671 new transfer students enrolled at Kennesaw State, the highest number for any school in the state. KSU also ranked 31st nationally. Many of these came from Chattahoochee Technical College, Georgia Highlands College and Georgia Gwinnett College after earning associate degrees.
