There are dozens of Adult Education Centers in Kanas ready to assist individuals aged 16 and older who do not have a high school diploma and who need assistance with basic skills to improve their career pathway. The Centers prepare students for the High School Equivalency test (GED®) and improve their English skills for the workplace.

Military Alignment

The Kansas Credit for Prior Learning Task Force works closely with the Kansas Collaborative on Military Credit and other appropriate groups to make recommendations for evaluating and awarding credit for military training.

Faculty and administrators convened to examine university and college course outcomes as compared to the skills, outcomes, and competencies learned in various military occupational specialties (MOS) designations. This is an ongoing initiative. Click here to review what MOS classifications have been aligned with academic programs across Kansas.



According to federal legislation known as the “Veterans' Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014,” all public universities and colleges offer the in-state tuition rate to veterans making use of Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, who live in the state where the institution they intend to enroll is located, and who file a letter of intent to establish residence in the state. Eligible spouses and dependent children also qualify for in-state tuition rates.

For more information about the Veterans Choice Act, click here.

For more information about Education and Training benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, click here.

Kansas also deems all current members of the armed forces to be residents of the state for tuition and fee purposes (including army, navy, marine corps, air force, coast guard, Kansas army or air national guard, or any branch of the military reserves of the United States), along with the spouses and dependent children of current members of the armed forces, who are enrolled or have been accepted for admission at a Kansas public postsecondary educational institution.

To confirm your eligibility, contact the Office of the Registrar at the institution at which you intend to apply or are currently enrolled. (For Kansas State University, a new undergraduate student should contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, while new graduate students and continuing students should contact the Office of the Registrar.) You can also utilize the direct links (listed as “Veterans Information”) on our list of all 32 public postsecondary institutions in Kansas to learn more.
