Education History

Attach copies of documents about relevant educational history (e.g., transcripts, teaching license, GRE, TEOFL, etc.)

Unofficial transcripts must be obtained from each institution attended before submitting the Graduate application. Applicants will need to order a secure PDF or have a paper copy sent directly to themselves. Both of these are considered unofficial because they are sent directly to the applicant not from institution to institution. Failure to disclose your entire and complete academic history may result in denial of admission, revocation of admission and assistantship offers, and/or suspension or dismissal after admission.

You must upload a copy of your transcript in PDF format from each college or university where you received your bachelor's degree(s) and completed any post-baccalaureate course work or degrees. Transcripts become part of your records at Kansas State University and cannot be returned.

Students whose transcripts are not in English must furnish a translation by an appropriate authority.

Note: Failure to list any colleges or universities attended may result in rejection of application.
