Prepare a typed essay regarding your academic performance last semester and plan for action for succeeding academically in the coming semester. Students will bring this essay to their first meeting with an Academic Commitment Program (ACP) advisor. View and print the essay guidelines here.

Together with an ACP advisor, you will develop an Academic Commitment Contract containing your goals for the upcoming semester.

Additional Information


Each student at K-State is assigned an academic advisor. This could be either a professional advisor located in the Academic and Career Advising Center or a faculty member in your department of study. Students with Manhattan majors will be assigned an advisor in their respective college. However, advisors in the ACAC can assist you with advising concerns and issues.

Establishing a strong working relationship with your academic advisor is one of the best things you can do to promote success in your university experience/education.

Your academic advisor can assist you with the following:

  • Scheduling courses for the upcoming semester
  • Developing an educational plan to achieve your goals
  • Academic difficulties
  • Major and career exploration
  • Connecting you to campus resources
  • Personal concerns
  • Graduation plans

If you are ever unsure as to whom your advisor is, please contact the Academic Advising Center at 785-826-2674.
