I want to take an online class without being formally admitted to a program.
If you are applying for a certificate program, please follow the application steps for freshman, transfer or graduate students.
If any of the below ring true, you should consider applying to take a class as a nondegree-seeking student.
I want to get started now, but I haven’t been admitted to a program yet.
I’m worried online classes won’t work for me and want to test the waters before applying to a program.
I want to take a class online but will be transferring the credits to another school.
You can take up to 15 credit hours as a nondegree-seeking undergraduate student.
You can take up to 9 credit hours for one semester only as a nondegree-seeking graduate student.
Note: Nondegree-seeking students are not eligible for financial assistance or scholarships. Approval as a nondegree-seeking student does not guarantee acceptance to a degree program.
Applications are accepted year-round. Early application is encouraged. The fall semester begins in late August, the spring semester begins in late January and the summer semester begins in late May.
If you apply as a nondegree or restricted student, you will not be required to submit official transcripts. However, you may be required to submit unofficial transcripts if you are enrolling in:
a graduate course and have never taken classes at K-State
an undergraduate course that requires prerequisites
