Application Tips

Prior Learning Assessment:

Prior learning assessment (PLA) makes it possible for students to earn credit for college-level learning gained outside of a traditional academic setting. Sources of prior learning include job or military training and professional certification programs. There are several courses where the student may be able to earn credit by successfully passing a "challenge exam."

Cybersecurity Career Journeys:

  • Kennesaw State University’s Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity program has greatly contributed to my growth both professionally and personally. After graduation, I was able to join a young and rapidly-growing cybersecurity firm in the Atlanta area, which allowed me to quickly jump into the world of consulting. This was all thanks to connections I formed during my time at KSU. I've since been able to grow into a full-time career as a penetration tester and red teamer, helping organizations secure their critical assets and helping to reduce business risk.

    My experiences from the CYBR program have been extremely valuable during this entire process. The technical and managerial concepts taught in the courses aided me in multiple real-world settings and projects. Additionally, I’d argue that the extracurricular opportunities at KSU, such as the Offensive Security club and SECCDC competition, are key differentiators for the program, and are nearly equal to the value of an entire undergraduate degree in themselves.

    If you are local to the Atlanta area, it’s also worth noting the extremely advantageous location that KSU possesses. The Atlanta technology sector is growing rapidly, with many large organizations in the city seeking talented individuals from universities like KSU.
