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.

Almost every Friday we give tours just for transfer students. They can be just a half-day or longer, and you can sign up for one before you apply to help make your decision or after you're admitted to get to know your new school.
