Three Ways to Transfer

Visit campus

Almost every Friday we give tours of the Lawrence campus — a half-day or longer — just for transfer students. Sign up for one before you apply to help make your decision or after you're admitted to get to know your new school.

Want some help putting it all together?​

Your transfer representative helps you navigate the application process and answers questions you have about requirements, what it's like at KU, or anything else you want to know.

Get credit for what you've earned

You put a lot of work into the courses you've already taken and want to make sure all that credit you earned will count. We've tried to make the transferring as easy as possible, with an online tool you can use to search for equivalent courses, guides for individual community colleges in Kansas, and other resources to give you an idea of how the work you've done will translate to KU.


Take the next steps

Admitted? You'll need to attend Orientation, enroll in courses, settle on a place to live, and take a few other steps before classes begin.
