Graduate and professional students

While the 2021-2022 academic year will be a more traditional in-person academic experience than recent semesters, there are still COVID-19 precautions in place that impact graduate students in their classroom learning, research and scholarly work, teaching responsibilities and professional activities.

The academics section of K-State’s COVID-19 website is the best place to find information on current protocols that impact teaching, learning and research activities. Graduate students should discuss with their major professor or assistantship supervisor any questions about how these protocols impact their work.

Support from the Graduate Student Council

Hybrid events

The Graduate Student Council is moving meetings and other events back to face-to-face formats, but will continue to offer an option to participate virtually in as many events as possible.

Travel awards

Many professional conferences and meetings continue to be held virtually or in a hybrid format. Graduate students may apply for a Graduate Student Council travel award to physically travel to an event or to assist with the registration fee to participate virtually.
