Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Would I be a good distance student?


Course materials, tests and case studies are all completed through the K-State Online course management system. Some courses have supplemental materials on videos or CDs, and others may require phone conferencing. Students interact with faculty and one another through email, phone conferencing and the Internet classroom, but complete courses in their free time.

See the system requirements for K-State Online.

There is no way to differentiate a degree obtained via distance learning from an on-campus degree.
