Registrations received by Friday, September 21 will receive confirmation by mail. 

Why should I register early?

Dress is casual and comfortable for all daytime events on campus. Attire for class events will depend on the venue.  Please check with your class coordinator if you have questions.  

What does the $15 registration fee cover?

I just want to attend my class event off campus. Do I still need to pay the registration fee? 
Yes. Much planning and preparation go into a class reunion event and the KUMC Alumni & Community Relations office works alongside the class coordinators to make them happen. The registration fee helps us provide your class event with registration support, set up, name tags, giveaways, planning, mailings, and more.

The Alumni Awards Luncheon celebrates our 2018 Alumni Award recipients. The event includes remarks by leadership, video presentation, awards presentation, and a buffet lunch. Alumni classes will be seated together. Alumni rate is $20 to attend. Space is limited.
