For Current Students

If you are a KSOE Gael then you are resilient, persistent, and motivated. You’re not afraid of challenge and have most likely encountered some tough situations recently.

You’re here for a reason and whether that reason is to connect with amazing faculty members; bond with exceptional learners in your chosen field; advance your career; expand your horizons; or complete a longtime goal; you belong here. We know the road ahead will not always be easy, in fact at times it may be downright difficult, but we want you to know that we’re here to help you navigate that process. It’s what we do and what you expect from us at KSOE.

The information on this site has been put together for you, KSOE Gael. It has been designed as a tool to help you through your KSOE journey. We welcome your feedback and look forward to working with you!
