Application Process for U.S. Students

Applications must be received by October 15 for the Manhattan cohort or June 1 for the Animal Health cohort, but earlier submissions are strongly encouraged due to limited spaces available.

  1. Complete an application. Apply electronically. You must also pay the $65 application fee online.
  2. Professional letters of reference. Request three professional letters of reference to be uploaded to the online application system (do not need to be from former instructors).
  3. Transcripts. Request that each college or university where you received your bachelor's degree or completed advanced course work send an official transcript to the MAB Program. Transcripts submitted by students are not considered official by the University. Official transcripts must be mailed or emailed directly from the university to the MAB program to be official. You may upload unofficial transcripts to the online application system, and request official versions be sent to the MAB program later in the process. Failure to list any colleges or universities attended may result in dismissal from the University.
  4. Statement of objectives. Explain your reasons for entering this field of study, professional plans, and research interests. Upload to the online application system.
  5. Letter of support from your employer. Request that your employer provide a letter indicating support of your entrance into the program – financial support is not required. It can double as a letter of support and be uploaded to the online application system. Or if it is a separate letter, it should be emailed to mab@ksu.edu.
  6. Resume. Upload to the online application system.

Letters, personal statement of objectives, resume and unofficial transcripts must be uploaded to the online application system. Official transcripts should be emailed directly from the university to mab@ksu.edu or mailed to the address below:

"I looked into several professional development programs and degrees, but the more I looked into them, it became clear the K-State MAB program was the most well structured. I appreciate the open communication with the entire staff and how helpful they are with the program. The exposure to individuals with such a variety of experiences and backgrounds has been amazing. I appreciate the campus sessions and the chance we have to work with, and learn from one another, as well. The coursework is very applicable and the professors do a great job of relating the material to real-life situations."
