    The Division of Continuing Education brings together K-State's teaching resources with learners throughout Kansas, the nation, and the world. Courses, conferences, professional updates, and other learning experiences extend university facilities and resources to individuals and organizations. The university makes use of the Internet, TELENET 2 (a partnership of Regents' institutions), the Regents Educational Communications Center (a video production facility), teleconferences, live compressed video (CODEC), satellite downlinks, audio and videotapes, multi-media, face-to-face instruction, and electronic synchronous instruction. Location, once a major obstruction for those seeking degrees, continuing education units, professional updates, or personal enrichment, is being overcome through effective use of technology and services to distance students.

    The Division of Continuing Education has a trained staff to assist those seeking academic credit or wishing to earn a degree in a non-traditional way. These people help students who have encountered obstacles to traditional college attendance, such as barriers created by distance, employment, physical handicap, or family responsibilities. Students are guided to faculty members who will advise them in their individual programs of study, and they are helped to select options such as off-campus classes, conferences, short courses, workshops, audio and video courses, telecourses, TELENET 2 courses, World Wide Web courses, correspondence study, credit by examination, internships, or independent study. The division offers credit and non-credit courses year round, including offerings in intersession, summer school, and through the program at Fort Riley.

    Intersession is conducted during three major breaks in the academic calendar: early January, late May and early June, and August. Annually, many regular and new or experimental credit and noncredit courses are offered in intersession, providing students with an opportunity to examine academic areas not scheduled in their current curricula and faculty members with a means to experiment with new ideas and formats for teaching. Students are encouraged to consult with their advisors to determine if a particular intersession course will fulfill specific degree requirements.

    Fort Riley
    K-State works in cooperation with the Army Education Center to provide courses to the Fort Riley community at times convenient to military personnel and their dependents. The courses allow the pursuit of associate, bachelor's, and master's degrees in several disciplines, including general social sciences, business administration, and education. Although military personnel have priority, all K-State students are encouraged to investigate this opportunity to pursue their academic goals by visiting the K-State personnel at Fort Riley who are familiar with degree requirements and procedures on acceptance of transfer work. For additional information contact the division office at Fort Riley at 785- 784-5930.

    TELENET 2 is a system comprised of a network of desktop video units at teleconferencing centers throughout Kansas that are linked together via telephone lines. A TELEbridge is also available to allow additional temporary teleconferencing classrooms to be established anywhere in Kansas for both credit and non-credit courses and programs, in-service training, meetings, or conferences.

    UFM Community Learning Center
    UFM is a community learning center that develops and conducts informal educational opportunities that do not involve prerequisites, grades, or credits. More than 500 programs are available during the three sessions a year. Classes, symposia, forums, and unstructured learning experiences covering a range of human interests, activities, and concerns are offered.
