These programs have been approved for special education endorsement by the Kansas State Department of Education.


Students pursuing a master’s degree in Special Education at Kansas State University are required to complete requirements for full endorsement in at least one area of specialization. However, when feasible, it is advisable to plan programs leading to endorsement in more than one specialization area.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • All international students admitted to the Graduate School must demonstrate the same level of achievement as U.S. students. That is, they must hold a degree from an established institution comparable to a college or university in the United States, have an outstanding undergraduate record, have the demonstrated ability to do graduate work, and provide evidence of language proficiency sufficient for the pursuit of a graduate degree. 
  • Admission may be denied to students from technical schools, which may provide excellent training in special areas, but do not offer degrees equivalent to those of colleges and universities. As a rule, students from abroad are not admitted to nondegree status (that is, as special students). Questions about the qualifications of international students should be directed to the Graduate School.
