Your education starts long before you enroll at Kansas State University. At K-State, we value your prior learning — those lessons you learned through your job, service to your country, volunteer experiences and more. We're proud to offer our students numerous options to assess your prior learning experiences for academic credit. The credit for prior learning website will show you how your previous educational experience transfers to K-State.
