New Student at KU?

If you're a new domestic student, you typically will enroll in classes during New Student Orientation with your academic advisor.
If you're an International student, you'll enroll through the International Student and Scholar program.

Enroll & Pay

Where do I enroll?

All KU students enroll on their own in the Enroll and Pay system on or after their enrollment date and time. Once you have met with your advisor, have all the courses you would like to enroll in and all of your enrollment holds are removed, you are ready to choose your class times and and enroll.  Your advisor will help you choose what classes you should enroll in for the future semesters to remain on progress for your degree, but students are expected to create their own weekly schedule and enroll on their own. You can use our Schedule of Classes website to look up classes you want to enroll in and see the days and times they are offered by looking up individual courses.

Enrollment Timeline:
-Schedule of Classes for the upcoming semester is typically announced at the end of March (for the summer and fall) and at the end of September (for the spring). You can find classes here.
-Next, you are given your enrollment time. This comes from the Office of the Registrar - they email you each semester! Your enrollment time is based upon the amount of hours you have completed.Your enrollment time refers to the moment  Enroll & Pay grants you access to officially secure your seats in the upcoming semester.
-Finally, you will be contacted by your advisor to schedule your enrollment appointment. This is what we advisors call your meetings with us to choose your courses! We always encourage you to come see us before your enrollment time opens.
