Admitted Freshman Checklist
The checklist and links below will help you stay on task. Want a list for the fridge? We created this printable checklist (pdf) for you. Don't forget you can also get reminders if you download the K-State mobile app, too!
Your eID was confirmed on your letter of admission. Keep your password safe. No one at K-State will ever ask you for your eID password. Never share your password via email. Connect with the iTAC Help Desk with questions.
Financial aid for new students
Student financial assistance has many resources to give you confidence as you complete the FAFSA and apply for K-State or other scholarships. The FAFSA is available October 1. Our priority FAFSA deadline is December 1.
The residence hall application opens in mid-September and the contract opens in early November. Use our housing portal to manage all your room, roommate and meal planning. You will be given details on room/experience selection during the spring semester.
New student orientation
Orientation and enrollment registration opens in early March. Select from several June dates or opt for our August date. And consider the extended Wildcat Warm-up experience, an exclusive opportunity for new freshmen to get a head start.
Academic file completion
Send your final official high school transcripts to the office of Admissions. If you took college classes or advanced placement exams, send those transcripts and scores as well. If you did not provide official ACT or SAT scores to verify self-reported scores, you will be asked to request scores from the testing agency.
Onboard with student health
Establish your myLafene account and start your medical records. State and university policy require students to provide details about vaccinations for measles, mumps, rubella, and meningitis if living on campus. We also send a tuberculosis risk survey after enrollment.
