Academic Advising and Planning

Our professional academic support staff in the Center for Student Success and Professional Services will help you evaluate your strengths and interests, choose classes each semester, discover opportunities for involvement, and work to find solutions to issues that arise. We will act as your guide, from applying for admission to the professional program, graduation, initial teacher licensure, and beyond. We work with you to navigate the challenges and successes you face as a student at K-State and in the College of Education to make your trip as smooth as possible.

Meeting your goals begins with developing a relationship with your academic advisor and creating an individualized graduation plan. Do you want to see the world? Want to add a major or minor? Your advisor can help you map out your collegiate career.

Graduation Plan

A graduation plan is a comprehensive list of courses to be taken by semester. The plan should include the requirements needed to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary or Secondary Education and obtain your teaching license.

Remember – this is your plan and it is your responsibility to update it. Course offerings are subject to change every semester. Therefore, the graduation plan is only meant to be a guide and doesn’t replace regular meetings with an academic advisor.
