Graduate Student Success Guide

Prior to the start of your first semester in a master's, doctoral, or graduate certificate program, you will be given access to the Graduate School's "Graduate Student Success Guide" in Canvas.

Spring 2021 incoming students

New graduate students for the spring 2021 semester started receiving access to the Graduate Student Success Guide on January 13, 2021. Upon being added, students receive an automated email from Canvas as well as a follow-up email from the Gradaute School with detailed information about the course.

If you are new to a master's, doctoral, or graduate certificate program in Spring 2021 and have not received an invitation to the Graduate Student Success Guide, please send a message to gdschgra@ksu.edu to notify the Graduate School.
