Kansas State University's academic advising graduate programs are designed for practicing academic advisors, administrators, faculty and future professional advisors seeking to enhance their knowledge and ability to work effectively with college students in their academic and career planning.
Winner of the Association for Continuing Higher Education's 2014 National Distinguished Credit Program Award, the online academic advising programs through K-State Global Campus provide a flexible and convenient way to reach your academic goals and learn from knowledgeable faculty members.
K-State offers three online academic advising graduate programs, developed in consultation with The Global Community for Academic Advising (NACADA):
- Graduate certificate – 15 credit hours
- Master's degree – 30 credit hours and final project
- Doctoral degree – 90 credit hours and dissertation
These programs provide a coherently structured set of courses for professional education. They emphasize the need to recognize the contributions of diversity, theory, practice and research to professional advising. Specifically, the mission of these programs is to prepare advisors to contribute to college student development and learning through the use of a comprehensive, theory-driven and research-guided advising practice.
Students who are admitted to the master’s degree or doctoral program are eligible to apply for financial aid. The graduate certificate in academic advising is a nondegree program and financial aid is not available for students completing only this program.
