Yes, you actually have to apply to graduate. For some reason, universities require students to apply to get in and apply to get out. So if you're in your last semester, be sure to apply for fall graduation. Undergraduate students: direct any questions about graduation to your academic advisor. Graduate students: view the graduation and commencement deadline calendar and contact the K-State Graduate School at 785-532-6191 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

Good news! While renovations continue on our beloved Hale Library following the May 22, 2018, fire, doors opened last week to the Dave and Ellie Everitt Learning Commons on the first floor. If you're on campus, be sure to visit/utilize the new space; otherwise, check out this short video on the transformation. We are thankful to the more than 2,400 individuals who have contributed to Help for Hale thus far.
