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.
Sign a contract as soon as possible — room and roommate selection begins in March and continues through the spring. As with any contract, cancellation charges may apply.
All U.S. students are eligible to apply for federal financial aid. If you're starting in the fall, file a FAFSA form anytime after Oct. 1 and have your information sent to KU (school code 001948).
Meet KU's priority date of December 1 for 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. Be sure to cancel aid at your previous school, so KU can disburse your aid.
In addition to academic advising and enrolling in your first-semester classes, Transfer 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.
There are additional Orientation activities and requirements for international students.
Transfer students do not pay an enrollment deposit. However, they will have a one-time $171 new student fee placed on their student account after enrolling in KU courses. This fee covers Orientation, First-Year Programs, and KU Card. After enrollment, this fee is non-refundable.
Within one month of sending KU your official transcripts, you can log into the myKU student portal with your KU online ID and check your Degree Progress Report (DPR), the larger report from which you can print your Degree Requirements Checklist or Advising Report. Use this information to discuss your degree path with your advisor at Orientation.
