Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register?

Registrations received by Friday, September 20, will receive confirmation by mail. The deadline to register is Friday, September 27.

Why should I register early?

What should I wear? 
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 $5 registration fee cover? 
The $5 fee per person provides access to Alumni Reunion Weekend campus and class events. This small fee helps offset overhead costs for Alumni Reunion Weekend including printing, supplies, and event expenses. Additional fees may apply to events where food is served. 

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 every class reunion event and the KUMC Alumni 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.     

What is the Alumni Awards Luncheon? 
The Alumni Awards Luncheon celebrates our 2019 Alumni Award recipients. The event includes remarks by leadership, a video, awards presentation, and a buffet lunch. Alumni classes will be seated together. Alumni rate is $20 to attend. Space is limited.
