Welcome to Kennesaw State University! In college, you will encounter new ideas, master new skills, make new friends, and develop a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you. If you are like most students, you are excited but also a bit nervous about the changes ahead of you. The Department of First-Year and Transition Studies is here to help you make a smooth transition to the university. Our academic programs will help you build the foundation required to thrive academically, socially, and personally at KSU.

Whether you are fresh out of high school or returning to college after a break in your schooling, we are committed to your academic success and personal growth. We have been recognized statewide and nationally for our award-winning work with first-year students. We look forward to continuing our good work with you. The Department of First-Year and Transition Studies Programs Overview will provide a description of next semester's first-year seminars and learning communities.
