Student Accounts

Students use KSIS to enroll in classes, run a DARS report, view grades, manage designees, order transcripts, buy athletic tickets, pay tuition and more. KSIS is integral to managing a student's academic career. Help with KSIS is available here.

Electronic bills and account information are available through the Student Center in KSIS. More information is available here.

Billing, Due Dates & Late Fees

Tuition and fees are due by 3 p.m. on the first day of class each semester. Subsequent charges or payment plan installments are due by 3 p.m. on the 15th of the month, or on the Friday before if the 15th falls on a weekend. 

Charges listed as "Due Now" are due in the current billing cycle; "Future Due" charges are due in the next billing cycle.

Unless you are enrolled in the Tuition Installment Payment Plan (TIPP), overdue charges are assessed a 1.5% late fee and place an account hold that prevents dropping or adding classes, receiving a transcript or diploma, or enrolling for additional courses. 

Students are encouraged to watch their campus emails for notifications of new bills, and to frequently check KSIS for transactions and balances due.

In the case of extenuating circumstances causing a late payment, students may fill out a Petition for Default Charge Waiver. A committee will evaluate the petition and decide whether to waive or uphold the default charge.

Payment Options

Payments received after 3 p.m. will be posted as the next business day.


Cash payments must be made in person in the Office of Fiscal Services.


Checks may be made payable to "KSU" with the student Wildcat ID number in the memo field along with whether the payment is for "tuition & fees" or "flight account." Checks may be brought in person to the Office of Fiscal Services or mailed to the following address:

K-State Polytechnic
ATTN: Cashiers College Center 209 
2310 Centennial Rd. 
Salina, KS 67401

There is a fee for all returned checks.

Online Electronic Check (ACH) or Credit Card

Payments by electronic check or credit card may be made through KSIS. Credit card payments are assessed an additional 2.9% convenience fee; there is no fee for electronic checks. Step-by-step payments instructions are available here.

Tuition Installment Payment Plan (TIPP)

The Tuition Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) allows you to pay your account balance in installments over the semester. For fall and spring, there are four monthly payments; for summer, there are two. While you are in good standing with the TIPP, your account will not accrue late fees and will not have a balance hold placed on it. There is a nonrefundable fee per semester to enroll in the TIPP. The fee and more information is available here.


Students can be sponsored by by the military, another country, employers, school districts, etc. K-State will bill approved sponsors and will temporarily move the charges from the student's account to the sponsor's account. However, students are ultimately responsible for the charges if payment is not submitted by the sponsor. More information is available here.


Deferments are granted for students who have met certain guidelines as authorized by the Kansas Board of Regents to give them additional time to pay for their tuition and fees. More information is available here.

International Payments

More information is available here.


Payments applied to student accounts in excess of charges will be refunded to the student. More information is available here.

Any refund that is a result of an overpayment by non-certified funds (personal check, etc.) will be held for 15 business days before the refund is processed. Refunds that are a result of dropped classes will not be processed until after the 20th day of classes.

Designated Access

The Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requires that a student's educational and financial records are private and confidential. They can be released only by the consent of the student. The student can grant access to someone else through the Designated Access process in KSIS.

Tax Information

The 1098-T is available through KSIS. More information is available here.
