Application Process for Nuclear Engineering Minor

1. Review Admission Requirements

The online nuclear engineering stand-alone minor is available to:

  • Students who have earned a bachelor’s degree in engineering from any ABET-accredited institution with a GPA of 2.3 or higher
  • Students who are currently pursuing a Kansas State University bachelor’s degree in engineering with a GPA of 2.3 or higher*
  • Students who are currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in engineering from any ABET-accredited institution with a GPA of 2.3 or higher

*Students pursuing a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering at K-State have the opportunity to earn a degree option in nuclear engineering by successfully completing a particular course sequence as part of their major course of study. The online nuclear engineering minor addresses the needs of other students at K-State who are not pursuing the nuclear degree option as well as engineers who already have a bachelor’s degree in engineering but have little or no nuclear coursework and wish to enhance their expertise in the nuclear engineering area.

2. Review Application Requirements

Applications are accepted year-round. Applicants should plan to apply no later than six weeks before the start of the semester. The fall semester begins in late August, the spring semester begins in late January and the summer semester begins in late May. An application will be processed once the application, application fee and additional required documentation have all been received.

Application Fee

  • U.S. Applicants: $40
  • International Applicants: $80
Returning K-State Students

Students who have not enrolled at K-State for at least one semester (excludes summer) must reapply. Previously enrolled students will not have to pay the application fee again or resend official required documentation unless additional college coursework has been completed since last enrolled at K-State.

3. Apply


Students who are not already admitted to K-State as an undergraduate student must submit the above application for admission and submit the department’s Minor Application Form, whereas current K-State students only need to submit the Minor Application Form.

Tip: on the application for admission, be sure to mark "No" that you do not plan to complete a degree, "Yes" that you are seeking a post-degree minor and "Yes" or "No" that you will have a degree from Kansas State University. Choose "Global Campus (online/distance)" and "Nuclear Engineering – Minor" for the remaining two fields.

4. Send Additional Documentation

Students are required to submit official college transcripts from each institution attended. A high school transcript and ACT/SAT scores are not required for this program.

Request official documents be mailed, faxed or sent via electronic transcript provider to:
