How U.S. freshmen apply to KU

(Not an incoming U.S. freshman?)

It's easy! No essays or co-curricular transcripts, and you'll automatically be considered for KU's renewable scholarships if you submit a complete application by Nov. 1.

Apply now »

Or, apply by mail (pdf), which takes longer.

A complete application includes:

  • Admission application and $30 fee (unless you qualify for a fee grant)
  • Self-reported ACT or SAT scores. KU's ACT code is 1470, and SAT code is 6871.
  • Self-reported grades and GPA from high school course work
  • List of your senior year courses (if you're applying or Honors, you'll need to upload a copy of your transcript or have it sent to the Office of Admissions)

Discrepancies between a student's self-reported admissions and official transcript may result in a student's admission to the University of Kansas being rescinded.

Updating your application

Use the Apply Now button to continue working on your unsubmitted application. If you need help, see the online application FAQs or email Once you've submitted your application, you can still update your application.

What's next?

You'll get an email when your application has been received in our office, but you can always check your admission status.

After you're admitted to KU, see the admitted students page for your next steps in becoming a Jayhawk. You can schedule a visit any time, and don't forget to file the FAFSA by the March 1 priority deadline for financial aid.
