The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid provides financial assistance, resources, and services to students at Kennesaw State University.

We believe students from all economic backgrounds should have the opportunity to attend KSU.

The information provided on this website will help answer your questions and concerns regarding financial aid. If you need additional information, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.


The Moving Forward Fund was created to help students who are adversely affected by COVID-19. Funds can be used by students enrolled in the Spring 2020 semester who are unable to meet unexpected financial burdens resulting from the coronavirus. Monies can be used for emergency support for various expenses, such as housing, food, travel, and technology.

Students should have exhausted all resources available to them before completing this application. If you are unsure if you have resources available that you have not utilized please check the financial aid tab on Owl Express or email finaid@kennesaw.edu.

To apply for financial hardship relief, please complete the Moving Forward Application.

Please note, individual circumstances and the volume of student requests will impact processing.

It may take 5-7 business days to receive a full response on your application.
