Excellence in advising


Academic advising is a partnership betwen advisors and students--and it is critical to academic success. Advisors support students in their educational planning, teach them how to navigate college and university resources, and encourage them to take responsibility for decisions about their academic progress.

Exploratory Advising

The Exploratory Studies program at K-State provides a proactive and reflective approach to exploring and deciding on academic majors and career paths. We support students who are deciding on their first major at K-State, transitioning out of their current major, working on the pre-requisities to join a new major, or need help with other general questions about majors, degree programs, academic advising, etc.


Navigate is a powerful tool that students use to make appointments with academic advisors and other services on campus, plan and view class schedules, stay on top of important deadlines and to-dos, locate important campus resources, and explore different majors.

Pre-Professional Advising

Pre-Professional advisors provide guidance and programming to encourage students to explore professional fields and prepare for a competitive application to professional programs such as law, medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant, dentistry, occupational therapy, nursing, veterinary medicine and more.
