Kansas State University Study Abroad Office

True emergencies are actually quite rare. While losing luggage, tickets, or even a passport is inconvenient, they are not emergencies. Emergencies are situations in which there is an immediate threat to a person's health and/or safety. An emergency is an occurrence or situation that poses a genuine and sometimes immediate risk to the health and well-being of program participants.

In case of a true emergency please call:
During business hours (M-F, 8:00am - 6:00pm), the Study Abroad Office at 1-785-532-5990
During non-business hours, the 24-hour emergency line: 1-785-532-5494

In the case of a minor emergency or inconvenience, please call the Study Abroad Office at 1-785-532-5990 or email overseas@ksu.edu
