Schedule a Visit

I want to schedule a campus visit.

Campus visits take place on weekdays so that you can meet with academic advisors, see current students, and visit university offices.

The best opportunity to learn about life at K-State is to visit while students are there, so it's best to avoid final exam week and student holidays.

Call 1-800-432-8270 or 785-532-6250 at least two weeks in advance to arrange your campus visit. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. When scheduling a visit, please mention if you would like to meet with a judging team or rodeo team coach.

How to Apply

I think I'm ready to apply.

Applying for admission is the first step. K-State's goal is to admit all students who have the potential to be academically successful at K-State. We also want to make the admissions process as simple as possible. High school students are encouraged to initiate the application process early in their senior year. Transfer students should apply three to six months before the semester they plan to attend K-State.

Admissions criteria vary depending on age, residency, high school attendance, and previous college work.
