FRESHMAN & TRANSFER STEPS TO ORIENTATION

 

Register for Orientation

Below, you'll find everything you need to know about Orientation registration. We recommend registering as soon as possible to ensure the best choice of session dates. 

Orientation and COVID-19

We’re committed to ensuring the health and well-being of everyone in our community, including soon-to-be-Jayhawks and their families. That’s why we’ve decided to transition all summer Orientation sessions to an online-only format.

We’re in the process of adjusting programming and events to accommodate these changes, and will be in touch with Orientation registrants as plans develop. Rest assured: Whether on the Hill or in the comfort of your living room, you’ll still learn everything you to need to know to enjoy a great first year at KU.

We’ll be in touch with more details as they come. You may also contact us directly at firstyear@ku.edu.
