Welcome, admitted Jayhawk!

Your admission to KU stands as a big accomplishment, but you have more to do to truly become a Jayhawk. Follow these steps to make your student status official, and lay the groundwork for a successful first year on Mount Oread.

 

You will need your student ID number found on your admission letter or at ku.askadmissions.net/vip. (It's not the username you used to apply online.) Once you click on the link below, on-screen instructions will walk you through the process of obtaining your assigned KU online ID and email address, as well as setting up a password, challenge questions, and additional email aliases.

All students are eligible to apply for federal financial assistance. For fall entry, apply for financial aid any time after Oct. 1 and have your information sent to KU (Federal School Code 001948). KU’s priority date is March 1 — meeting that date gives you the best chance at the limited funds some programs offer. If you are admitted for spring or summer, you can fill out the FAFSA now for aid in those terms.

Payment of your enrollment deposit acts as your official acceptance of KU’s admission offer. You can pay this deposit online or by check starting in early September. You can also assign a delegate, such as a parent, enabling that person to pay this and other KU fees directly. Once your deposit is received, you can register for Orientation.

In addition to academic advising and first-semester enrollment, Orientation will cover resources at KU, what it means to be a Jayhawk, and tips for handling the transition to KU. Orientation sessions occur in January for spring-admitted students, and April, June, July, and August for fall-admitted students. The Office of First-Year Experience will send registration materials to spring-admitted students in late November and fall-admitted students in mid-January.

For first-year students, we offer residence halls with traditional two-person rooms or two- or four-person suites, as well as scholarship halls, where students help with cooking and cleaning, which reduces their costs. Sign a contract as soon as possible — room and roommate selection begin in March and continue throughout the spring. (Scholarship hall application materials must be submitted by Nov. 1.) As with any contract, cancellation charges may apply.

Visiting campus as an admitted Jayhawk can be both productive and exciting. Take a tour with a student ambassador, with a focus on what your life will be like as a Jayhawk. You can schedule a meeting with a representative from your academic area of interest or an academic advisor who can discuss transfer credits and your degree plan.
