At Kennesaw State University, we are honored to serve our men and women who have honorably served our country. As a token of our appreciation, we have made it a top priority to make your transition back to higher education as smooth as possible.
We have been recognized as a Military Friendly School by several organizations dedicated to serving our Nation's Veterans. We are very proud of our on-campus Military and Veterans Services, which serves as a one-stop-shop devoted solely to the development of veterans; the first of its kind in the state of Georgia.
All service members should speak with their Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within their military service prior to enrolling at Kennesaw State University or any institution. Since military funding is limited, it is important for all service members to use all their resources in making any educational decision.
