FAQs about the Summer Courses

Do I need to apply to attend a summer institute or course?

To apply for one of KFAC's summer institute or course, complete the appropriate registration process. Upon receipt of the application and fee, applicants will receive a confirmation letter with additional class information, which includes enrollment procedures if necessary, a class syllabus, and a tentative schedule. Applications are available on this website or by contacting the KFAC office.

What does the application fee cover?

The application fee covers the cost of materials, resources and printing services required to make the course possible.

Are the application fee and tuition costs the same thing?

No. The application fee covers the cost of materials, resources and printing services required to make the course possible. Tuition is the charge for instruction through Kansas State University. In order to receive graduate credit hours through KSU, tuition costs must also be paid.

Are there any tuition scholarships available so that I may attend?

Unfortunately there are no scholarships available. We partner with generous donors to make the cost as low as possible for you, however, tuition cost is not part of that.

If I get graduate credit for attending a course, what are the course requirements?

Completion of a course requires participants to attend the course during the scheduled dates and times, classes meet 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (classes may extend past 5:00pm to cover necessary information, please be flexible), and to submit lesson plans for use in the classroom.

What about transportation, lodging and meals?

Participants will be responsible for their transportation to and from class, their lodging accommodations and meals, unless otherwise specified in the confirmation letter sent by KFAC. For students traveling from a distance, hotel reservations are encouraged. For the course in Manhattan, lodging is available in university dormitories; call K-State Housing at (785) 532-6368 or visit this website and click on "Summer".

What if I submit an application but then am unable to attend?

The application fee will be deposited upon receipt and will be refunded if the applicant is not selected to attend or if less than 10 students are enrolled in the class. If an applicant chooses to cancel their application, a request must be made in writing 30 days prior to the first day of class in order to receive a full-refund of the application fee. If an applicant must cancel after the 30-day notification period without emergency cause, KFAC will retain the application fee.

What if I have additional questions?
