PhD Program

Doctor of Philosophy in Leadership in Academic Advising

The leadership in academic advising doctoral program prepares professionals for roles in leadership, research and teaching focused on academic advising in higher education. The courses emphasize the need to recognize the contributions of diversity, theory, practice and research to professional advising.

Applications have closed for the cohort beginning in Summer 2020. The next cohort will begin in Summer 2022. For more information about the program and how to apply please visit

This program is offered as a specialization within the counseling and student development doctoral program and requires a minimum of 90 credit hours post-baccalaureate. A cohort model is used, where doctoral courses are taken in a planned sequence of six credit hours per semester (fall, spring, and summer). All courses are offered using K-State Online (Canvas), our learning management system. Some synchronous class and cohort sessions are required via Zoom, our interactive video system. A one-week, on-campus session is required during each of the first three summers of the program. Applications for the next cohort will be accepted beginning in April 2021.
