    To enroll at KU, students complete the immunization and physical exam requirements. The Student Health Clinic at KU Medical Center accepts appointments for exams and vaccinations by appointment. Please carefully read and follow the steps outlined in the health requirements for enrollment. Students may not enroll until this step has been completed. Please direct questions to the office at (913) 588-1941.

  5. Health Insurance
    All full- and part-time students attending the University of Kansas must have proof of health insurance coverage. The University of Kansas Medical Center offers a health insurance policy for eligible students. Please follow the health insurance verification steps as soon as possible. Students may not enroll until verification is complete.

  6. Criminal Background Checks
    Please read about the School of Health Professions background check and drug screening requirements. Follow the instructions found on that page to complete the checks. Results will be kept on file with KU School of Health Professions. Please contact Moffett Ferguson in the Office of Student Affairs, 913-588-5275, for questions. All reports must be received by KU prior to beginning the program.

  7. Color Blindness Test
    The color blindness test can be completed through the Office of Student Health Services on the KU Medical Center campus, Student Services Building.

  8. Enroll and Pay
    Enrollment, tuition and fee payments are completed online. Log on to the KU Enroll and Pay System and use your username and password to access your account. Student fees are explained at the Office of the Registrar website. Students receiving financial aid to assist with the tuition and fee payment may complete this step after financial aid disbursement are made to student accounts. This usually occurs approximate a week prior to the first day of classes.

  9. Required Compliance Training
    Online KU orientation and compliance training are required of all students. Students entering the program for fall semester will receive an email from the Office of Student Life with instructions. Returning students will complete the training during the September 1-29 window. Students access the modules using MyKUMC (http://my.kumc.edu) or at https://tlc.netdimensions.com using a KU Medical Center username and password. Topics include HIPPA, computer security awareness, work environment policies, health and general safety, respect in the classroom and workplace, and workplace violence.

    If compliance training is not completed during the designated window, the student's network ID will be deactivated and they will have to complete training in the library by appointment in order to be reactivated.
