Returning Students

Returning Students

I was previously enrolled as an undergraduate K-State student and am returning after taking at least one fall or spring semester off.

Admission Requirements

  • You must have a minimum cumulative K-State GPA of 2.0

Some programs may have additional admission requirements. Visit the program webpage for more information.

Academic Warning

If you left K-State on academic warning or have a K-State GPA less than 2.0, you can still be readmitted if returning into the same major in which you were previously enrolled.

Academic Dismissal

If you were dismissed from K-State, you may still be readmitted if approved for reinstatement. In addition to submitting the below application for admission, you must also contact the academic college you wish to enter and request an application for reinstatement. Dismissed students must normally wait at least two semesters before being considered for reinstatement.

Inactive Graduate Students

If you were admitted to a graduate program but have not enrolled at K-State in the last two years, you have become inactive and must reapply as a graduate student.

Don’t meet admission requirements? Contact an online admissions representative at or 800-622-2578 to find out about other pathways into K-State. You may be eligible for conditional admission.
