KSU 101 Resources
All students are required to have a K-State eID. eID is short for electronic identity. It is the name for a student’s central computer ID that serves as the primary electronic identity at K-State. The eID becomes the first part of the K-State email address (i.e., eID@k-state.edu).
→ To register for a K-State eID, go to: eid.k-state.edu
The eID is required to:
- Access the university’s student information system (KSIS)
- Enroll for classes
- Access your eBill
- View final grades
- Use your K-State email account
- Access courses through Canvas
- Download university licensed software
- Access the library database
Students must remember their eID and password. Passwords must be changed twice per year. Students lose access to e-mail and other computing resources if they do not enroll, but they do not lose access to KSIS if they keep their password current.
The Wildcat ID (WID) is the student number assigned by the Graduate School upon admission to the University. This is a nine-digit number that always begins with an "8." It will be listed on the top of the acceptance letter. Students should maintain this number for their records. It is required to complete the Program of Study document and other official forms. It can also be found on the upper right-hand side when you log in to the eID profile page.
KSIS and Enrollment
Students enroll in classes online using Kansas State University’s Student Information System (KSIS).
- KSIS manages maintenance of student records, enrollment information, access to grades, and payment of tuition.
- KSIS can also be accessed directly from the K-State home page under the sign in drop down menu on the top right side of the page located underneath the search bar.
- Student KSIS Help is available, including resources for specific help topics and Frequently Asked Questions
- For help signing in to KSIS, contact the IT Help Desk at (785) 532-7722 or toll free 1‐800‐865‐6143.
Webmail and Office 365
Office 365 is K-State's collaboration service that integrates email, calendaring, notes, and tasks management. Go to webmail.k-state.edu to access Office 365.
All email correspondence from K-State, including eBill information, will be sent through K-State email accounts. Most faculty prefer students use K-State email accounts to avoid any problems with forwarding course documents and other material. Student’s eID and password will be needed for access.
Office 365's hosted email and calendaring can be accessed via computer, phone or Web browser. K-Staters have a default mailbox size of 50GB.
