1.  ADMISSION

a.  Admission of Undergraduate Students to State Universities

Admission of all undergraduate degree-seeking students to state universities shall be in compliance with the Board’s Qualified Admission Regulations, K.A.R. Articles 88-29, 29a and 29b, as applicable.  State universities may set admission requirements for undergraduate non-degree seeking students, as long as those requirements do not conflict with K.A.R. Articles 88-29, 29a, 29b and paragraph c. below. 

b.  Admission to Undergraduate Special Programs and Graduate Programs

State universities are permitted to restrict admission to undergraduate special programs and graduate programs where conditions warrant, so long as those restrictions do not conflict with K.A.R. Articles 88-29, 29a, and 29b, as applicable.  Universities shall notify the Board’s President and Chief Executive Officer, or designee, of such restrictions prior to implementation.

c.  Auditing Courses

Any Kansas resident 60 years of age or older upon the presentation of sufficient proof of age shall be permitted to audit courses at state universities on a space available basis with no requirement for payment of tuition and fees required of every student as a condition of enrollment.  A person meeting these requirements shall be considered a non-degree seeking student for purposes of K.A.R. Articles 88-29, 29a and 29b.  Special academic fees shall be paid by the student.  All determinations as to residency, the age of the applicant and the space available for the auditing of courses by such persons shall be made by the state university involved.
