K-State Online offers more than 150 academic programs to students around the world who need or want the added flexibility of learning online. Although your educational experience may not take place in a lecture hall, you’ll be taught by the same quality instructors who teach on campus and your classes will follow the same rigorous academic standards that K-State has always maintained.
Classes are structured to increase interaction, and students are often surprised at the strong bonds they’re able to forge with their classmates, advisors and faculty even when they live hundreds or thousands of miles apart. You’ll also have access to the same support services on-campus students receive, such as tutoring, the Writing Center, library services and financial counseling.
Intersession is conducted during the following three-week breaks in the academic calendar: late December to mid-January, late May to mid-June, and late July to mid-August. Annually, many existing and new or experimental credit courses are offered during intersession, providing students with an opportunity to examine academic areas not scheduled in their current curricula and faculty members with a means to experiment with new ideas and formats for teaching. On-campus, study abroad, and online or distance classes are offered during intersession. Students are encouraged to consult with their advisors to determine if a particular intersession class will fulfill specific degree requirements. Intersession course information can be found online at https://online.k-state.edu/why-learn-online/flexibility/intersession.html.
