Online Application

Before you begin the application process, please be aware of the following:

  1. There is a $60 non-refundable application fee*. This fee can be paid by credit card after you have completed the application.

  2. Once you complete the application and submit payment, the application is "locked". You will not be able to make changes to your application. If you decide that you need to change or update information on your application after submitting it, please email us ( and we will make the change administratively. You will be able to save and return to an unfinished application until it has been submitted.

  3. You will be asked to login to the application system. The login and password needed is the same as what is used for your VIP page. If you have never completed the Interest Page and used your VIP page, then you will need to set up your login and password when starting the application process.

  4. After you have submitted your application, additional important information about your application status will be sent to you by email. The email address that will be used will be the email address in your profile for your VIP page (or the application login if you are creating it for the first time). Please be sure that this is an email account that you monitor and respond to, since information regarding your status will be sent to that account.

  5. This application should be used:
    • For those seeking admission to The Graduate College for the first time.
    • For those that have been previously enrolled as a KSU Graduate student, but have NOT taken classes in the last 6 semesters (you status is inactive).
