Applying as a Current KU or Transfer Student

All transfer and current KU student applications go through a comprehensive review process that considers each applicant's academic credentials and involvement.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and due no later than two weeks before the start of each semester. 

Successful applicants exhibit the qualities we expect out of a University Honors student by earning strong grades, challenging themselves through new experiences, and being actively involved with their current campus community. Most successful transfer and current KU student applicants . . .

  • have strong college GPAs,
  • are involved in their communities and demonstrate leadership potential,
  • and are prepared to take advantage of the opportunities University Honors can offer.

Your application will not be reviewed until you have at least one semester of college grades on record, and transfer students must have already submitted applications to KU. Additionally, students who have less than four semesters remaining prior to graduating are generally not admitted to the University Honors Program, unless they can demonstrate that they have a plan for completing our curricular requirements within their remaining time at KU.

Do you have questions about applying? Email us to talk to an Honors advisor about the program.
