How it Works

How we offer high quality, academic programs

  • K-State Great Plains IDEA students apply and are admitted to K-State, which becomes their home university.
  • Students enroll and pay tuition at K-State; however, courses are taught fully online by faculty from each of the partner universities within a student's program.
  • Each degree or certificate includes courses taught by multiple universities who partner together to offer online degrees they could not offer alone.
  • Each university uses their own learning management system to deliver online course content, and students use the LMS to complete coursework.
  • When you complete your coursework, the degree or certificate is awarded by K-State.
