Requirements

Students interested in the Master of Science in Academic Advising program must apply to the K-State Graduate School and be admitted as degree-seeking students before enrolling in classes. Admission decisions will be based on a combination of factors, including prior academic achievement, the nature of a students academic preparation, and the relatedness of the programs offering to a students goals. In general, a student with a bachelors degree with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 from an accredited institution can expect to be admitted to the masters degree program.

Students who have completed only a bachelors degree and have a cumulative grade point average below a 3.0 are required to submit current Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Miller Analogies Test (MAT) scores. Students may not enroll in classes as a nondegree K-State Global Campus student.

Applicants to graduate degree programs pay a non-refundable application fee of:

* $50 for U.S. citizens and permanent residents and
* $75 for international applicants

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5 TOEFL paper-based test score : 550 TOEFL iBT® test: 79

Funding

Most graduate students are able to finance their education with a variety of financial assistance tools specific to graduate school:

* Graduate Assistantships: Funded by individual departments and graduate programs, teaching, research and graduate assistantships are awarded based on a student's ability and promise.
* Graduate Fellowships
* Loans: Loans are available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have successfully applied for financial assistance
* Traineeships: Traineeships are offered through the university or departments that have federally supported traineeships.
