Transfer student orientation and enrollment

April 22 or 23, 2014, in the K-State Student Union

You are invited to orientation and enrollment for admitted transfer students. This is your best opportunity to select summer and fall courses.

Not only will you learn more about K-State, you'll also meet with an academic advisor and go through the class selection process. You can even take care of essentials like ordering textbooks and athletic tickets.

Activities start promptly at 8:30 a.m. in the K-State Student Union. The program may take until 5 p.m., so plan accordingly.


Online registration is closed. If you are a transfer student admitted for summer or fall 2014 and would like to attend the orientation and enrollment on April 23, you need to register on-site in the K-State Union at 8:30 a.m.

If you cannot attend in April, your next opportunity to enroll will be Wednesday, June 11 or Thursday, August 21. Information regarding these orientation and enrollment dates will be sent at a later time. If you have questions, please contact John Lantz at 785-532-6237.
