Dates and deadlines

Admission and general university scholarships and awards

Apply for admission as soon as possible, as your admission application will trigger an automatic review of your eligibility for general university scholarships/awards. Maximum scholarship/award consideration is given to applicants who apply by the priority date. Applications are still accepted after the priority date, but scholarship/award offers are then only made pending the availability of unawarded funds.

KSN is a portal that connects you to scholarship opportunities that are in additional to the general university scholarships/awards triggered off of your application for admission.

On-Campus housing

  • After being admitted to K-State, you may choose to complete the residence hall interest form, which becomes available September 15 each year. This form is not required but offers students who are admitted prior to the contract opening the opportunity to pre-populate some key information.
  • The housing contract is required for on-campus living. You will complete this contract using the Housing and Dining Services Resident Portal.
    • While there are no specific deadlines, contract completion (a first-come, first-served basis) will determine room availability.
    • The housing contract opens in December for fall residents and in October for new spring residents.
