How to Apply
Apply online and pay the application fee using the undergraduate application.
In the form you will be asked the following questions and for the certificate you should answer as follows:
- Do you plan to complete a degree? No
- Are you seeking a post-degree minor? No
- Are you seeking a certificate? Yes
- Do you plan to take more than 15 credit hours at K-State? Yes
- Where will you be taking K-State courses? Distance Education
After answering these questions you will have the opportunity to select the Food Science Certificate from a list.
If you have received credit from other institutions, have each institution send an official transcript to the K-State Office of Admissions and follow up with that office to make sure they have received your transcripts. Transcripts mailed by students are not considered to be official. The Office of Admissions will forward your transfer course material for an evaluation of how your courses apply toward the food science undergraduate certificate program.
Your application will not be processed until all transcripts from the institutions have been received by the Office of Admissions.
