Student Teacher Info

Student Teachers...

Let us know if you need anything.

Spring 2010 Business Contests

Due to the current economic conditions (including stability of school budgets), we have canceled the 2010 Spring High School Business Contests.

We hope to resume High School Business Contests in the future.

Summer Opportunity!!!

Check your calendars.

August 1-4, 2010 - Overland Park, KS

I am working on an opportunity that should be mutually beneficial. Basically, what I am wanting to do is setup a chance for you guys (students) to gain some professional development and networking experiences. KBOA (Kansas Business Occupations Association) needs some assistance (in my opinion) during their annual conference.

IF I can work something out so that registration is FREE (you would be responsible for housing and some food) would you be interested?

Please touch base with me, let me know if you are interested!!

Advising & Degree Summaries

Just a reminder... PLEASE make sure you are requesting a Degree Summary from the Registrar's Office. We need to be double-checking to make sure you are progressing along in the program.

ALSO, if you need to make schedule changes for any reason, please see your advisor As Soon As Possible!
