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 spring graduation. Undergraduate students: direct any questions about graduation to your academic advisor. Graduate students: view the graduation and commencement deadline calendar (PDF) and contact the K-State Graduate School at 785-532-6191 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Feb. 12 is the last day to drop a regular session (aka full-semester) class for a 50% 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 email@example.com.
Discover the world and discover yourself with Education Abroad. Global Campus students are welcome to enroll in study abroad opportunities. Get started on the Education Abroad website (note Feb. 15 and March 15 are two important upcoming deadlines) or contact them at 785-532-5990 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We're also pretty sure that if you visit a country for longer than a week, you get to say you lived there.
K-State Counseling Services provides online presentations on timely topics to promote and enhance human strength and positive mental health practices. Presentations are held on Tuesdays from 4-4:45 p.m. CST, and distance students can join via Zoom. Presentations are also recorded and saved online.
