What to do when

Some tasks and dates to know! 

Admission

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. More time as an admitted student offers you more time to plan a successful transition. A late enrollment fee of $50 may be charged to a student account if admission and enrollment activities are not completed prior to the first day of classes. 

November 1
General university scholarships: Incoming students apply for scholarships
  • Nov. 1 was the priority deadline for incoming fall 2019 freshmen. If you haven't yet applied, it's not too late! K-State will continue to accept applications and will award scholarships pending funding availability.

Please also note that some selective scholarships have unique application deadlines. Review our general university scholarships carefully to keep track of deadlines and eligibility requirements that apply to you.

Housing

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 November.

While there are no specific deadlines, contract completion (a first-come, first-served basis) will determine room availability. Please begin the process by completing the residence hall application as soon as you decide you want to live on campus. 

December 1
General university scholarships: Incoming students apply for scholarships
  • Dec. 1 is the priority date for incoming freshmen (effective for the fall 2020 entering class) and for transfer students who plan to enroll for the spring 2020 semester.
