What happens to my K-State email account?

You can keep your K-State eID as long as you turn on e-mail forwarding through eProfile. However, if you didn't have e-mail forwarding turned on and you haven't used your eID for five years - meaning you haven't signed into eProfile or changed your password for five years - then your eID was released and became available for someone else to choose.

While you can keep your eID, you will lose access to most K-State resources after you leave. For detailed information about what happens when you leave K-State and what you should do before you leave, see Preparing to Leave K-State. Once you are no longer enrolled at, employed by, or associated with K-State, you will be notified via your K-State e-mail address that access to your K-State e-mail and other resources is going to be removed. You then have about two weeks to make any copies needed. Once your access has been removed, there is a $50 fee for one week of access to copy any data you forgot. Contact the IT Help Desk to request access to your data. After you've been gone from K-State for 180 days, all files and e-mail associated with your eID are destroyed and removed from the central backup systems. Learn more about Access to IT Resources when leaving K-State.


What if I forgot to take CES' post-graduate survey?

No problem! Take the post-graduate survey now


How do I make sure my diploma gets to me?

Make sure your correct diploma mailing address is entered for Degree/Diploma in your KSIS student center. This is essential for ensuring timely receipt of your diploma, particularly if you will be moving following graduation.

Not sure where you will be after graduation? Ask your parents, grandparents, or a friend if you can have your diploma sent to them.


When will I get my diploma?

Upon confirmation of degree requirements and clearance of all financial delinquencies, diplomas for spring graduates should be mailed by the end of August. Diplomas for summer graduates should be mailed by the end of November.

If you haven't received your diploma by these deadlines, contact the Dean's Office at 785-826-2601.


How do I get my transcript?

In order to obtain official copies of transcripts, all financial obligations to Kansas State Polytechnic, including traffic and library fines, must be cleared. Transcript requests must be in writing. Learn more about ordering transcripts. Contact the Registrar’s Office for assistance at 785-826-2607. Note: Degrees earned for spring graduates will be available until after graduation. Please contact the registrar for specific information. 


What if I plan to keep taking classes?

If you plan to continue taking undergraduate course work after graduation, you must apply for readmission to the university prior to enrollment here. PLEASE NOTE: You may not re-enter the same degree program in which you have already earned a K-State degree. Allow five working days to process your application. Contact the Office of Admissions, 119 Anderson Hall, 785-532-6250.

If you plan to take courses for graduate credit, contact the Graduate School, 103 Fairchild Hall, 785-532-6191.


How can I stay connected with campus and receive information about events and activities?

Amy Cole is the director of development, helping to bridge the gap between alumni and their former university. She is not only interested in learning about what prior Kansas State Polytechnic graduates are up to, but also connecting Wildcat alumni with each other and the campus. For more information on upcoming alumni events, email Amy Cole at amyc@found.ksu.edu. Also "Like" the Kansas State Polytechnic Facebook page; follow the Kansas State Polytechnic Twitter page for alumni news; and add us on Instagram for the visual way we capture campus happenings.

Why do you want me to update my information?

There are a lot of reasons. We want you to receive relevant K-State information in the future.

  • We like to know where you're working, it gives us something to brag about to future students, other alumni, and total strangers (kind of like your parents and grandparents do).
  • We want to celebrate with you: new job, new spouse, new baby… you name it, we want to be happy for you!
  • Each year we choose an Alumni Fellow, someone who has been successful in his/her field. If we don't know what you've accomplished, we can't select you for the honor!

Update your information.
