Online Program Students

***The Virtual Orientation is Currently Undergoing Changes***

Online learning at KSU is NOT being discontinued; if fact, it is actively growing. It is because of this growth that the decision was made to discontinue the Web Learners Program in favor of a program that will better support our fully-online students.

Because of these changes, the Virtual Orientation is not currently available. We will update this page with information at a later date; however, the Virtual Orientation will no longer be a requirement to receive a Registration Time Ticket. If you do not have a time ticket for the upcoming semester, please contact the Office of the Registrar at registrar@kennesaw.edu
