Admitted freshman checklist
The checklist and links below will help you stay on task.
Summer 2023 and forward admits, you will need to create an eID and password to access K-State systems. Two business days after you have been admitted, login to your application status page to retrieve your Wildcat ID to set up your K-State eID. Your eID provides access to many of K-State's systems, including K-State webmail. (Your eID precedes "@k-state.edu" to create your official university email address.)
Keep your password safe, never share your password via email and know that no one at K-State will ever ask you for your eID password. Connect with the iTAC Help Desk with questions.
Financial aid for new students
Student financial assistance has many resources to give you confidence as you complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA is available starting Oct. 1.
K-State Scholarship Network
The K-State Scholarship Network, KSN, is a platform for you to share more details about yourself, your academic interests and your involvement. Once you are admitted, you can create a KSN profile, which may match you to additional scholarship opportunities. For Summer 2023 and forward admits, you will need to create an eID and password.
Once submitted, you'll receive a confirmation email via your official K-State email address.
Incoming freshmen are required to live on campus. The residence hall contract opens in December. Use our housing portal to manage all your room, roommate and meal planning. You will be given details on room/experience selection during the spring semester.
Advanced standing credit
If you have advanced credit from Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), DANTES Subject Standardized Test (DSST), International Baccalaureate (IB), or military credit evaluation, see how scores or credit transfer.
New Student Orientation
Your official path to K-State begins! This is your opportunity to connect to the university, meet advisors, enroll in classes and engage with fellow Wildcats! Watch your email for updates on when your New Student Orientation registration opportunities will open. Select from dates that correspond with your planned entry term to K-State (spring or fall).
Academic file completion
Send your final official high school transcripts to the Office of Recruitment and Admissions. If you took college classes or advanced placement exams, send those transcripts and scores as well. If you did not provide official ACT or SAT scores to verify self-reported scores, you will be asked to request scores from the testing agency. You must have your official test score sent to K-State by February 1.
Onboard with student health
Log in to your myLafene+ patient portal to upload your insurance card and the required immunizations. State and university policy requires all students to complete the Tuberculosis Screening Questionnaire and submit proof of two Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccines. If you are living in on-campus housing, you are required to also submit proof of one Meningococcal ACWY booster vaccine.
New freshmen who enroll in June can access their tuition bill in KSIS in mid-July. Bills generated in July are due by 3 p.m. on the first day of class in August (Fall semester).
Students who enroll in November will see their first tuition bill in December. Bills generated in December are due by 3 p.m. on the first day of class in January (Spring semester).
Any pending financial aid is listed as a courtesy but will not be officially credited to your account immediately. Pending financial aid will be credited to your tuition account by the due date on the bill, in accordance with regulations, and may change if you change enrolled credit hours.
