Academic Advising Handbook


This site contains a variety of helpful information, but perhaps none more so than the university-wide academic advising syllabus, developed in 2015-16 and approved for use by the University Advising Committee in the fall of 2016.  This syllabus contains common elements for all students and advisors.  It also provides colleges, departments, and other units with space for more focused expectations and guidelines.

The Academic Advising Handbook is a continual work-in-progress. Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Studies if you have any questions or feedback. Thank you!


Provost Mason's Vision for Academic Advising at Kansas State University

Academic Advising is one of the most important activities we engage in at Kansas State University. Through advising, we help students establish their academic and career goals and then guide them through the courses and activities which will enable them to accomplish these goals. This handbook is designed to provide you with easy access to a wealth of information you will need as you and your advisees travel through this process.

- April Mason, Provost and Senior Vice-President
