What to do when

A suggested timeline for fall incoming students

September and October


Apply for admission and scholarships as soon as possible. Applications for admission are accepted up to 15 months before the first class day each semester. If an application file is complete at least seven working days before the first day of classes, an admissions decision will be made before the first day of classes. Otherwise, the decision may be delayed until after the first day of classes, and a $50 fee will be assessed to the student account for late enrollment.

November 1

Scholarships: Incoming freshmen apply for scholarships
November 1 is the priority deadline for incoming freshman students in the spring semester to submit the K-State scholarship application. The fall deadline is Feb. 1. Some scholarships have unique application deadlines.

November and December

You can apply for housing any time after being admitted. Applying for housing is a two-step process.

  • The residence hall application (step 1) becomes available in September.
  • The residence hall contract (step 2) becomes available in December.

While there are no specific deadlines, assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis, so please complete the residence hall application as soon as you decide you want to live on campus. A valid K-State eID and password are required to complete the residence hall contract.

February 1

Scholarships: Transfer students apply for scholarships
February 1 is the priority deadline for students transferring to K-State from another college or university and for continuing K-State students to submit the K-State scholarship application. Some scholarships have unique application deadlines.

Programs with application deadlines

Feb. 1 is the application deadline for the College of Architecture, Planning and Design; priority deadline for the wildlife and outdoor enterprise management program in the College of Agriculture; and priority application deadline for the interior design and athletic training education programs in the College of Human Ecology.

March 1

Financial aid
March 1 is the priority deadline to apply for federal student aid. Find out if you qualify for grants, loans and work-study programs with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. K-State's federal code for the FAFSA is 001928.
