Student Success and Academic Advising
The goal of the K-State Global Campus Student Success and Advising Team is to provide outreach, resources, and support to online students by recognizing their unique learning needs to achieve their academic and personal goals.
Each undergraduate student is assigned an academic advisor that is skilled at serving the adult online student population. Advisors work with students in a holistic manner to ensure their success toward meeting their academic goals at K-State. Advisors participate in numerous retention efforts with their students each semester including progress report follow up and re-enrollment efforts.
Graduate Student Retention
Global Campus has a designated Coordinator who assists online graduate students with academic and personal success resources, navigating the Graduate School policies and procedures, and serving as a point of contact for general university or online learning questions.
Communication and Outreach
Students receive regular weekly communication via the Worldwide Wildcats e-newsletter that includes important and timely general university information. Online students can reach a member of the student success team by staffed phone and email and ensure they will receive a timely response to questions. All online students are provided a free Canvas Orientation course that includes information about K-State resources, policies, and procedures. Students also have access to an online learning readiness assessment, SmarterMeasure, that provides feedback and resources to ensure all students are prepared for the online learning environment.
Testing and Proctoring
K-State students enrolled in an online class that requires proctored assessments are assisted in setting up their accounts in Examity, the university’s online proctoring service. Students are also assisted with locating an in-person proctor in their area if needed.
We assist faculty in setting up proctored exams for their courses with Examity and can provide troubleshooting.
Global Campus awards and facilitates scholarships three times per year (each semester) specifically for distance students earning their undergraduate or graduate degree online. To be eligible, students must be enrolled as a degree-seeking student in at least 3 credit hours and complete the Global Campus scholarship application. Most scholarships are need-based, so the FAFSA is also strongly suggested for those scholarships. There are a limited number of scholarships available and priority is given to distance students who have not received a Global Campus scholarship in the past.
Rules of style, or Netiquette (network etiquette), that are expected when communicating through class email lists, message boards and discussion rooms.
