All students, whether they are on-campus or distance students, degree-seeking or nondegree-seeking, must either be admitted to a degree, certificate or minor program or must be approved as nondegree-seeking before they can enroll in a course.

7.Check to see if you have any holds. Many holds, like an advisor flag, will prevent you from enrolling. You can view your hold details to find instructions on how to have the hold removed.
8.Each student has an individual enrollment date that indicates the date and time during which you are allowed to enroll. View your enrollment date.
9.You will be able to complete these steps to enroll on or after your appointment date and time and once all holds have been removed.

It is important to enroll as soon as possible to ensure your spot in a class. All courses have capacities and many fill up quickly. If the class you want to enroll in is full, you can add yourself to the class wait list. A $50 late enrollment fee will be assessed to students who enroll in their first class on or after the first day of the class.

If you are having difficulty enrolling, we encourage you to contact your academic advisor or you may also contact the K-State Global Campus Student Services office for assistance.

Help with Getting Started Questions

Go To Top

Select classes using the Class Search and print your class interest list (or make note of the class numbers), then complete the "Getting Started" questions. These will lead you to the next step in the process of enrolling for classes.

Following are the questions and reasoning to use when selecting your answer:

Are you a current student at K-State? Yes or No.
Not sure?
You are a current student if:
You have taken a K-State class in the previous or current semester for undergraduate or graduate credit;
or
You are admitted to a specific K-State degree program for the current semester.

If your answer is Yes, you will be asked:

Do you have an active eID? Yes or No.

If your answer is Yes, you will be directed to KSIS to enroll for your class(es).

If your answer is No, or if you're unsure whether or not your eID is active, contact the K-State IT Help Desk at 1-800-865-6143 or 785-532-7722.

If your answer is No, you will be asked:

Have you ever taken classes at K-State? Yes or No.
No explanation needed for this question! Answering Yes or No directs you to the forth question.

Do you wish to apply now, or are you currently admitted to a degree or certificate program at K-State?

If your answer is No, this indicates that you intend to be nondegree-seeking and you will be presented with the link to complete the appropriate form. You will receive notification regarding your admission status in one to five business days.

If your answer is Yes, you will click on the link to complete the appropriate application form. You will receive notification regarding your admission status in approximately one month for undergraduate applicants or two to three months for graduate applicants.

If you are admitted to an undergraduate degree program but have not taken a class for two semesters (excluding summer), answer No to the first question, Yes to the second question, and after answering Yes to this forth question, you will be directed to the Undergraduate Readmission Form to be readmitted to your program.

If you are admitted to a graduate degree program but are not currently taking a class, contact the Graduate School at grad@k-state.edu. You cannot enroll until the Graduate School has activated your record for the term (term activate).

Not sure?
If you are not sure if you have been admitted to an undergraduate program, contact the Admissions Office at k-state@k-state.edu or 785-532-6250.

If you are not sure if you have been admitted to a graduate program, contact the department to which you have applied. Contact information can be found in the K-State directory.
