  • Students are admitted to courses based on the admission requirements, procedures, or prerequisites that apply to the same courses taught at Kansas State University Polytechnic Campus. 
  • All students must have a 2.0 cumulative high school GPA and meet the ACT or placement exam scores. 

Placement Requirements

  • Students who feel their ACT math scores are not reflective of their ability or who have not completed ACT testing may take K-State's alternative math placement exam to attempt to meet admission requirements.
  • The KSU Math Placement Exam (MPE) can be taken online at www.math.ksu.edu/placement once the student has set up a KSIS account.
