Intersession is a time between university terms when students can concentrate on one class in a shorter, accelerated period of time. Courses are offered on campus, off campus through field trips and study abroad opportunities, and online.

Intersession courses are offered each January, May and August, with classes ranging from approximately one to three weeks. January intersession typically runs from late December to mid-January and is part of Spring semester, May Intersession typically runs from mid-May to early June and is part of Summer semester, and August Intersession typically runs from late July to mid-August and is also part of Summer semester.

Development Grants

Each fall, K-State Global Campus requests proposals from K-State faculty and departments for the development of new online courses. Through a market-focused investment process, the Global Campus Development Grant aligns with the mission of Global Campus to extend the university's intellectual resources through quality degree programs, lifelong learning and professional development opportunities. The intent is to help direct the use of incentives and financial support toward developing courses that closely align with the priorities and strategic goals of the university.

Microcredentials Initiative

As the first operational land-grant university, Kansas State University is uniquely positioned to meet today’s challenges of developing and enhancing human skills and capabilities through education, learning and meaningful work. While delivering curriculum in the traditional form of courses leading to degrees has a long history at K-State, the need to develop a coherent microcredentialing infrastructure is essential to K-State's future.
