No. Courses follow a structured curriculum and are completed within a 16, 12, 8 or 4-week session for fall; 16, 12 or 8-week session for spring; and a 12 or 6-week session for summer. 

You will need to request transcripts from the Office of the Registrar at your selected college of enrollment within the EDUKAN consortium. 

You cannot withdraw from a course from the EDUKAN website. You must contact the Office of the Registrar of your selected college of enrollment within the EDUKAN consortium. The last day to withdraw from a course is generally two weeks before the last day of the session. 

States may require out-of-state institutions to obtain authorization to offer postsecondary education in accordance with its laws and regulations. State regulations vary from minimal to very strict requirements. In the majority of states, the need to seek authorization depends on the specific combination of that state’s laws and the activities an institution is conducting in that state. Those activities derive from how the state defines “operating,” “physically located,” or “physical presence.”

The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA) established uniform standards for physical presence. Through reciprocity, an institution authorized under SARA in its home state would be considered authorized in all other SARA states. Currently, 49 states are SARA members.

EDUKAN's member partners are authorized to participate in the National Council of State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA).

Our consortium member schools are Barton Community College, in Great Bend; Dodge City Community College, in Dodge City; Pratt Community College, in Pratt; and Seward County Community College, in Liberal.

The only non-SARA state is California. Please refer to the State Status page for additional state information.

EDUKAN recommends that you purchase your books from the EDUKAN Online Bookstore to ensure that you get the right books for the course(s) you selected. Book titles become available for purchase one month prior to the start date of the first session of the term. 

For students who plan to purchase textbooks from another online bookseller, we urge you to use extra caution to make sure you get the correct textbook edition, title, author and publisher and that the books may be returned if you choose to not continue with the course.

This FAQ is for students who were enrolled at Colby Community College or Garden City Community College and are no longer part of the EDUKAN consortium. Rest assured, your credits can be transferred to one of our other partner schools.

We will help you with this transition.  If you have any questions about the change in partner schools available at EDUKAN, please contact us via live chat, or call us at (877) 433-8526 (toll-free) for help OR you can contact the school below.

EDUKAN is a cooperative effort between six western Kansas community colleges to offer online courses. Students may take individual supplementary courses from EDUKAN online and can complete a number of certification and associate's degree programs. 

EDUKAN is not a college. It's a consortium that is made up of four western Kansas community colleges that are fully accredited to offer courses online via EDUKAN. The college you pick becomes your selected college of enrollment. Your college will require transcripts of any previously attended schools to be on file.

Financial aid is administered by your selected college of enrollment. You must meet that college's requirements for submitting transcripts and other documentation. Many of the colleges have cutoff dates for each term. 

All EDUKAN courses cost $150 per credit hour regardless of Kansas residency status. 

The $115 resource fee that is assessed to courses that have embedded publisher course content.

Payment is made directly to the business office at your selected college of enrollment.

Go to the iTunes app store to download the free Pearson eText for Campus app. The Pearson eText for Campus app requires version iOS 5.1 or higher. The app is not available on an iPhone or iTouch. 

For Android:

Go to the Google Play store to download the free Pearson eText for Campus app. If your Android tablet is unable to use Google Play, then you'll be unable to use the Pearson eText for Campus app.

The Pearson eText is English language only.

EDUKAN students are enrolled administratively. Instructors don't have to worry about enrolling students in their courses. 

Students can access a course from the day an active class begins to two weeks after the end of the semester.

ALL courses can be accessed via our learning management system for the new semester by logging in from the EDUKAN website on the first day of class.
