WorldWide Wildcats Weekly Email
January 16, 2018
Welcome all new and returning Kansas State University Global Campus students to the official first day of the spring 2018 semester. Note to self: you've got this! Fill up your coffee cup, because every Tuesday for the next 16 weeks, we'll be delivering you need-to-know information just for distance students — aka the WorldWide Wildcats.
Access your online classes through K-State Online (aka KSOL aka Canvas aka that place you'll be spending all your time). If you're new to Canvas, take the K-State Online Tour. Download the app on Android and iOS devices to take your courses with you on the go.
Tuition for most students is due today at 3 p.m. CST. Visit your Student Center in KSIS for details. There are two online payment methods: paying by credit card incurs a fee, while paying by electronic payment out of a checking account is free of charge. The Tuition Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) allows payments to be spread out over the semester. View all payment options.
Spring 2018 financial aid refund checks will be mailed to your KSIS local address on Friday, Jan. 19. Get your refunds faster with direct deposit (EFT). After the first week of classes, EFT's are processed daily while paper checks are processed once per week.
It's not too late! You have through Jan. 22 to enroll in additional courses that began Jan. 16. After that date, instructor permission is required. Search for available online classes.
See our website for specific instructions on how to locate and purchase required textbooks. Make sure to order textbooks and materials right away to account for shipping times. Not everyone can be Amazon Prime.
As a K-State student, you have access to free software, including Microsoft Office (yeah, you heard that right). The Microsoft Office package includes desktop and mobile app versions and can be installed on up to five PCs or Macs, five tablets and five phones.
