Campus life
Change in City Go bus route near residence halls  
The City Go bus stop in front of the residence halls on campus is transitioning to an "on-demand" stop due to the small volume of riders from that location. OCCK will be placing a sticker on the bench that informs riders to call a number when they want to be picked up. The bus will pull through the circle drive to pick up riders as needed rather than driving through campus every time per the published schedule. Individuals who want to come to campus originating from another stop in town will need to inform their driver of the desire to be let off at the Polytechnic stop. Pricing structure and everything else stays the same.

Scholarship opportunities
Learn more about the Gilman Scholarship through a webinar Sept. 6
Education Abroad and the Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships will be hosting a Gilman Scholarship webinar on Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. The Gilman Webinar is open to Pell Grant-eligible students. During the workshop, students will learn more about the Gilman scholarship and how to get started on the application. The Gilman Scholarship Program is an undergraduate grant program for U.S. citizens of limited financial means to enable them to study abroad. The program provides awards of up to $5,000 for undergraduate students at two- and four-year institutions who are receiving a Pell Grant to study or intern abroad. Join the webinar here.
Employee Tuition Assistance
Award amount is for tuition only in a K-State course for up to 3 credit hours per term. The maximum award amount will not exceed the value of 3 hours at the in-state Manhattan/Salina tuition rate (ie. campus fees, other institutional fees, etc. are the responsibility of the employee).

Dependent/Spouse Grants

For dependents or spouses that are enrolled full time in a degree terminating undergraduate program, the award will be the equivalent of the regular, resident on-campus tuition rate for 7 undergraduate course credits, where full-time for an undergraduate is defined as at least 12 enrolled credit hours per regular fall/spring term.

For spouses that are enrolled part time in a degree terminating undergraduate program the maximum award will be the equivalent of the regular, resident on-campus tuition rate for 3 undergraduate course credits, where part time for an undergraduate is defined as less than 12 enrolled credit hours per regular fall/spring term. (Enrollment of less than 3 credit hours, will result in the proration of the award i.e. 2 credit hours enrolled = the equivalent of the regular, resident on-campus tuition rate for 2 credit hours - or - 1 credit hour enrolled = the equivalent of the regular, resident on-campus tuition rate for 1 credit hour. )
Dependents that are enrolled less than full-time in an undergraduate program are not eligible for the K-State Dependent/Spouse Grant.
