The program begins at 1:00pm in the Mabel Brown Room, 2nd Floor of the Student Center. Information will be sent to your KSC email address mid-November.

KSC Owl Card

Students living in campus housing who have submitted an acceptable photo online by the end of business on Wednesday, January 16th will receive their Owl Card at their campus residence when they check in on Move-In Day (1/20/19).

Students living off campus, or residential students who have not submitted an online photo, must go to the Owl Card Office to have a photo taken and/or pick up their Owl Card.

Readmitted students with an Owl Card issued after August 2015 can still use their most recently issued Owl Card if they wish. However, as a readmitted student you may have a new card issued for this semester at no charge.
