Degree and Program Development

The growing need for educated and highly skilled individuals in the workforce encourages current workers to strive to obtain a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, certifications, and other advanced education while working full-time and unable to relocate to a college campus.

DCE has provided educational opportunities to non-traditional students by, offering degrees, certification programs, and non-credit courses.

Course Development Services

The Division of Continuing Education offers several services to help facilitate courses offered including:

  • Collect, approve and monitor proctor agreements for proctored exams.
  • Send correspondence to your students via e-mail or mail.
  • Send paper exams or electronic exam passwords to your students or their exam proctors.
  • Collect, log and distribute assignments and exams.
  • Send course materials to students.

Non-Credit Development

Non-credit opportunities for individuals and companies are becoming important resources in keeping America’s workforce highly productive and competitive. K-State academic resources can be formatted and delivered to help meet these needs. DCE can help you identify how to best match an educational product to workforce development. Non-credit opportunities offer professional updating, career advancement, workforce development, and recertification requirements.

Conference Planning

Delivering a successful conference, seminar, or workshop and establishing a Continuing Education Unit (CEU) or certificate program involves a great deal of planning, preparation, organization, and effort. Trained DCE staff can contribute to the program at all levels, from conceptualization to conclusion.

DCE provides support services to plan and execute a program, allowing you focus on content rather than the logistics. Services can include program planning, marketing, financial administration, registration services, and logistics of the event.

Our professional staff works with conferences and workshops annually, many held in Salina, with many others held throughout Kansas, Program size can range from a small 15-person seminar to a 500+ participant conference. Lengths of programs vary, and distance delivery systems can be used for workshops and non-credit courses.
