You'll need the student ID number listed on your admission letter, or you can find it in the system where you check your application status. (It's not the username you used to apply online.)
When you log in at 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.
First-year students choose from a variety of room types – all of which feature convenience and on-campus location - and which offer varying levels of privacy. Apply and pay the $50 fee for housing beginning in September after you have been admitted to the university. This guarantees you’ll have housing when you attend KU. Room selection is in April.
Your all-inclusive options include residence halls and apartments, which offer two- or four-person suites, two-person rooms, or private bedrooms with private bath; or cooperative living in a scholarship hall.
Paying your enrollment deposit acts as your official acceptance of KU’s admission offer. You can pay it 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 beginning Feb. 3.
All U.S. students are eligible to apply for federal financial aid. If you're starting in the fall, file a FAFSA form any time after Oct. 1 and have your information sent to KU (school code 001948).
KU’s priority date is December 1 — meeting that date gives you the best chance at the limited funds some programs offer. If you're admitted for spring or summer, you can fill out the FAFSA now for aid in those terms.
In addition to academic advising and enrolling in your first-semester classes, Orientation will cover resources at KU, what it means to be a Jayhawk, and tips for handling the transition to college life.
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.
If you have credits from college-level courses you took in high school, at a community college, or from another higher education institution, send us your official scores or transcripts so we can apply them toward your course work at KU.
