Application for Current/Transfer Students

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. Your application will not be reviewed until you have at least one semester of college grades on record.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. We are now accepting applications for Spring 2019 and Fall 2019.
