Orientation and enrollment
You will be assigned an appointment time with your academic advisor during the college session in the morning of your orientation day. All appointments are scheduled based on how far you live away from Manhattan, Kan., e.g. if you live in Denver, Colorado, you will have an earlier appointment than someone that lives in Kansas City, Kan. Please plan to spend the entire day with us as we may not be done visiting with everyone until 5 p.m.
During the 30-minute appointment with your academic advisor, we will discuss how your transfer courses fit into our curriculum and the major of your choice as well as what courses are the best fit for your first semester. Your academic advisor will enroll you in your first semester courses. We do hold seats in business courses for transfer students on these dates so even if a course is listed as full in the K-State course schedule, we may have a seat for you!
The College of Business offers 6 majors and several certificate programs. You will earn your Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration after completing a minimum of 120 credit hours.
