Students enrolled in a Global Campus bachelor's, master's or doctoral degree program should apply now for spring 2019 scholarships. We're planning to award up to $36,500 for spring 2019 to distance students based on a variety of eligibility factors, including grade point average, financial need, military status, degree program or current employer.
Our thoughts are with our students in the path of Hurricane Florence. K-State Global Campus is here to offer support to students who understandably may need assistance with academic challenges during this time. Please contact us.
K-State Libraries and the Graduate School have teamed up to offer The Library and Your Research Workshops series. These free, hour-long workshops are designed to provide graduate students with a solid foundation for a successful academic experience. Sessions are streamed live via Zoom and recordings are available on the library's website.
Sept. 24 is the last day to drop a regular session (aka full-semester) class without a W (aka withdrawal) being recorded on your transcript. Just to make things interesting, non-standard (aka short) courses have their own unique drop/refund dates and follow these deadlines. Dropping all of your classes requires you to contact your academic dean's office. Graduate students should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
K-State Counseling Services provides online presentations on timely topics to promote and enhance human strength and positive mental health practices. Presentations are held from 4 to 4:45 p.m. CST on Tuesdays, and distance students can join via Zoom. Presentations also are recorded and saved online.
Friday, Sept. 22 is the first day of the fall season. Fall at K-State means football (go Cats), 60 degree weather, long walks on the
beach campus admiring the changing leaves and pumpkin-flavored Call Hall ice cream. Happy fall, ya'll.
