If you are expecting to graduate this May, congratulations! Commencement ceremonies will be held May 17 and 18 in Manhattan, Kansas (or May 11 in Salina, Kansas, if you're a K-State Polytechnic graduate). If you plan to join us on campus, let's party! K-State Global Campus is hosting a graduation reception for distance education graduates and their guests from 4-5:30 p.m., Friday, May 17 at the K-State Alumni Center. Please note that if you do plan to come to Manhattan, it is important to make hotel reservations as early as possible. Visit this website for more information to help plan your visit. Invitations to follow.
If you’re ready to start a new career in secondary education but don’t want to wait to finish a two-year master’s program or another bachelor’s degree, the Master of Arts in Teaching is for you. This 12-month accelerated program combines online courses with classroom experiences at an accredited middle or high school near you. Upon completion, you’ll be eligible to apply for a teaching certification. You or someone you know can learn more on the program website.
On-campus K-State students will be on spring break March 11-15. Online classes may have activities, assignments or exams due during this week, and it will vary by class and instructor. Please check your course syllabi or contact your instructor(s) if you have questions. University offices will remain open during this time.
Summer and fall 2019 enrollment is right around the corner. As you're finalizing your summer enrollment plans, don't forget to apply for summer financial aid (like scholarships, grants and loans).
