What is early action?

Advance access to next steps

Orientation registration unlocks one day in advance if you are an early action applicant and pay your deposit before Feb.1. KU Student Housing opens for application on Nov. 1, and you must be admitted to apply. As an early action applicant, if you apply for housing in November, you will be in one of the early groups to select from housing options. If you apply in December or later, you will make your selection after those who apply in November.
