The Family and Consumer Sciences Education undergraduate program is a teaching licensure program approved by the Kansas State Board of Education. Students seeking the FCSED bachelor's degree must first be admitted to Kansas State University.
Admission to Kansas State University
K-State accepts admissions applications year-round. Admission is based on a student's demonstrated academic preparation for university-level work. All first-time students and transfer applicants must submit an admission application, an official high-school transcript and official transcripts from all postsecondary institutions attended, GED scores (if applicable), standardized test scores from the testing agency (first-year students) and a nonrefundable application fee. For more admissions information, or to apply, see the K-State Office of Admissions website.
Admission to Teacher Education in the College of Education
Although FCSEd students are enrolled in the bachelor of science degree program in the College of Human Ecology for the duration of their undergraduate program, completion of the program is dependent upon their admission to teacher education in the College of Education.
