Kansas State Polytechnic

K-State NOW

  • Kansas State Polytechnic courses are offered for students who desire to complete college credit while still in high school.
  • Completing these courses is a way for high school students to receive college credit to get a head start on their post-secondary education. 
  • The courses may be taught in the high school, at the Polytechnic campus, or online. 
  • Students may complete up to 15 credit hours at a reduced tuition rate.

Who Qualifies to Enroll in Courses?

  • Students who have a 3.0 cumulative HS G.P.A. and meet the established ACT or Placement Score requirements.
  • Students who have received permission from a guardian / parent and the high school counselor.

Deciding to Participate

  • Students should discuss participating in college courses with their guardian / parents and high school counselor.
  • Early enrollment for college credit, grades recorded on permanent college transcripts, and cost should be discussed.
  • Low grades and withdrawals need to be avoided as they will have an impact of future college G.P.A. and potentially financial aid/scholarships
