Alumni passes are priced at $23 per month, and are valid in any visitor parking area on Kennesaw or Marietta Campus. Requests for Alumni permits are handled via email by the KSU Parking & Transportation Office.
Requesting an Alumni Permit
Please submit your Alumni Parking Permit request to email@example.com with the following information:
· Customer name, address, email address, and phone number.
· Customer vehicle information: license plate number; vehicle make, model, and color.
· Number of months the permit will need to be valid (i.e. 4 months).

Using Your Alumni Permit
Upon receipt of payment you will receive an email notification of permit activation. Your permit’s activation length will correspond to the length of parking purchased.
