We report the following classifications of optical transients from spectroscopic observations with KOSMOS on the KPNO Mayall 4-m telescope. Targets were supplied by the ASAS-SN, Gaia and PSST. All observations were made on 2017 July 26 UT. Classifications were performed with SNID (Blondin & Tonry, 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024).

When the redshift is given to 2 decimal places, it is derived from the SN spectrum. Otherwise, the redshift is determined from the host galaxy.
(1) We measure a Na D EW of 1.4 A. We measure a Si II 6355 velocity of -10,300 km/s.
