Submitting a Grievance
Kansas State University and the K-State Global Campus want to serve students in the best way possible and strive to work with students to address any grievances and work toward a solution. If you as a student have a complaint regarding your online course, instruction or other academic procedures as a K-State distance student, you may visit our Student Concerns and Complaints website.
Arranging for Special Assistance
Kansas State University is committed to providing accessibility to all participants of courses, conferences and programs.
Grades and Transcripts
A student's grades may be accessed through KSIS or by ordering an academic transcript. A paper copy of your grades will not automatically be mailed to you. For course-specific grading policies, please see the course syllabus provided by your instructor.
Requesting an Incomplete
If you realize you cannot complete your coursework by the end of the term in which you are enrolled, you have the option of requesting a grade of incomplete from your instructor. View details about incompletes.
Use this Incomplete Grade Agreement between Student and Instructor (DOC) form to ensure that details of your incomplete are communicated between student and faculty.
Minimum enrollments are set for each course. Courses with low enrollments may be canceled. A full refund is given if a course is canceled.
K-State Honor and Integrity System
Kansas State University has an honor system based on personal integrity, which is presumed to be sufficient assurance in academic matters that one's work is performed honestly and without unauthorized assistance. All full-time and part-time students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate courses on campus, off campus and via distance learning, by registration in those courses, acknowledge the jurisdiction of the honor system.
