Frequently Asked Questions


If I want to take a course, do I have to go through the application process and be admitted into the university?

Is there a set tuition rate for Evening College, Intersession, and Online courses offered through K-State Global Campus?

Tuition and fees vary by course. Visit the course search to see individual tuition charges for the course you are interested in taking.

Am I able to take classes without any previous college experience?

Yes, as long as you meet the prerequisites for that class.

Am I eligible to apply for financial aid for the On Track program?

Yes. All students admitted to the university in a degree program may apply for student financial aid. The Office of Student Financial Assistance (SFA) can guide you through the different types of financial aid available such as scholarships, grants, loans, and even employment opportunities.

How will my previous/other college credits transfer?

K-State will accept transfer credits from other accredited institutions. The Office of Admissions determines which credits will transfer from previous course work.

Is Kansas State University accredited?

Yes, Kansas State University is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, Chicago, Illinois. The standards are reviewed and accreditation is renewed every ten years.

How many courses can I take at once?

Most students take one or two courses per term, depending on time availability. Eight-week courses are more intense due to the condensed/accelerated schedule.

Are all courses available all of the time?

The course schedule varies from term to term. It is best to work with your advisor when planning your course sequence.

How much is the admissions application fee?

The fee is a one-time, nonrefundable payment of $40 for U.S. applicants, and $80 for international applicants. If you discontinue course work, you may need to reapply for admission (but you won't need to pay the application fee again). View the application for admission.

How long does it take to be admitted?

It depends on the time it takes for other schools to send your transcripts after your application form and application fee are received, up to an additional three to four weeks. If you have applied for admission and have not heard back, please contact our main office.

What disability accommodations do you offer?

Kansas State University is committed to making courses accessible to all students. A student with a disability requiring a special accommodation should contact the Student Access Center at 785-532-6441 at least three weeks prior to the beginning of the course.
