Admission Requirements for the General Business Bachelor's Degree Program
To qualify for admission into the general business bachelor's degree, students must follow the Kansas State University Office of Admissions policies and procedures.
Students entering college for the first time and eligible for admission to K-State must enroll in the business administration pre-professions program (BAPP).
Students with previous academic work (either at K-State or elsewhere) requesting transfer to the College of Business Administration must have a 2.5 or higher grade point average and enroll in the BAPP curriculum. Transfer students, entering with 45 or more credit hours, must achieve a K-State GPA of 2.5 or higher on the first 15 or more hours of K-State course work to be able to continue in the College of Business Administration. For purposes of admission, grade point averages will be based on all courses attempted at colleges or universities.
The BAPP is expressly designed as a non-degree program; students with 60 or more credit hours will not be allowed to enroll in BAPP unless they are first-semester transfer students. Students remain in BAPP until they meet the requirements for their intended degree plan and complete an Application to Degree Plan.
You must be admitted for the fall semester by Aug. 1, spring semester by Jan. 1 and summer semester by May 1. This means that all transcripts, application fees and any other requirements must be completed and received by these dates.
Please note: It takes at least four to six weeks for an application to be processed once all application materials have been received by the university.
How to Apply
Apply online through the Bachelor's Degree Completion Program.
The application fee is $40 for U.S. applicants and $80 for international applicants. However, if you have previously attended Kansas State University, you will not have to pay the application fee again. Be sure to select the term in which you plan to take classes.
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 to the program's department, where an evaluation will be made of how your courses apply toward the bachelor's degree.
Your application will not be processed until all transcripts from the institutions have been received by the Office of Admissions.
Send your transcripts to:
