Academic instruction


K-State is offering robust and innovative teaching and learning experiences that include in-person, online or blended/hybrid course options during fall 2021. The fall 2021 semester will provide a more traditional in-person academic experience, with a few continuing precautions. The academic calendar returns to a more traditional structure. Physical distancing requirements are removed and the university returns to pre-pandemic room capacities and in-person experiences and gatherings.

Decisions about our academic instruction during the phased return are guided by the need to:

  • Continue to protect the health and safety of students, faculty, GTAs, staff and our communities.
  • Maintain high-quality learning environments for our students.
  • Balance the needs of students and of faculty/GTAs.
  • Be adaptable to respond to changing conditions related to COVID-19.
