You must be admitted for the fall semester by June 1, spring semester by Nov. 1 and summer semester by April 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:
