Yes, you actually have to apply to graduate. Seems odd, but 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 graduation. Doing so by March 1 will ensure your name is included in the printed commencement program. Undergraduate students: direct any questions about graduation to your academic advisor. Graduate students: view the deadlines for graduation and ETDR submission checklists and contact the K-State Graduate School at 785-532-6191 or email@example.com with any questions.
Feb. 6 is the last day to drop a regular session (aka full semester) class for a 100% refund. 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 has partnered with Lifeworks My Student Support Program (Lifeworks My SSP) to offer free mental health and well-being support for all K-State students.
