Billing and payment
All billing from K-State is sent electronically to the student’s K-State email address and is also available in the student’s KSIS account at https://ksis.k-state.edu. Once enrolled, the student will have at least a month before tuition is due. K-State’s billing cycles on 3 p.m. of the 15th of the month (or on the Friday before if the 15th falls on a weekend.)
Upon enrollment, tuition will be assessed to KSIS as “future due” until the next billing cycle occurs. Then the amount becomes “due now” and is due by the next billing cycle.
Mail a check written to “KSU” with the student’s Wildcat ID (WID) number in the memo field to:
K-State Salina Cashiers Office
2310 Centennial Rd.
Salina, KS 67401
Pay cash or by check on campus in the Cashiers Office.
Any unpaid “due now” amounts are assessed a 1.5% monthly late fee. If the student signs up for a monthly payment plan, which incurs a $45 nonrefundable fee, monthly late fees will not be charged. Students must have accounts paid in full before they will be allowed to enroll in future K-State courses and before their transcript will be released.
