We are no longer accepting Current Student or Transfer Student Applications for Fall 2016.

This application is for students transferring to the University of Kansas from another college and for current KU students who are not yet members of the University Honors Program.

All applications go through a comprehensive review process that takes into account the applicant’s college GPA, curriculum, involvement on and off campus, and motivation to join Honors. Please be sure that you have at least one semester of college grades before applying.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting:
-November 15 through two weeks before the start of the spring semester
-June 15 through two weeks before the start of the fall semester
