    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 Educational Communications Center (a video production facility), teleconferences, live compressed video (CODEC), satellite downlinks, audio and videotapes, multi-media, CD-ROM, face-to-face instruction, and electronic synchronous instruction. Location, once a major obstacle 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 on-campus Evening College program.

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.
