Application Deadlines and Procedures

Applications to graduate study for fall admission must be completed by March 1, and applications must be completed by October 1 for spring admission. Applications are reviewed when the following materials have been received:

  • Kansas State University Graduate School application indicating the desired entrance semester (this is an online application available on the K-State Graduate School website)
  • Unofficial transcripts from all college coursework (both undergraduate and graduate, if applicable) should be scanned into the graduate school application website. If you are admitted to the program, official copies of your transcripts must be submitted directly from the registrar's office of all previous institutions of higher education to the K-State Graduate School.
  • Completed applicant supplemental information form. This has been created by FNDH graduate faculty and has replaced the need for a Letter of Intent or Statement of Objectives.
  • The online application within CollegeNET will prompt you to provide names and contact information for three references who can speak to your potential success in a graduate program. Once your application is submitted, they will be prompted to complete a recommendation on your behalf both in CollegeNET and a department Qualtrics form (no letters needed!). A strong recommender is someone who has a graduate degree and can speak to your potential in a graduate program.
