Schedule a Visit

KU schedules group campus visits primarily in the summer and fall terms. These dates are announced and posted in advance on each program’s website. Students may also submit the online form to receive updates when new dates have been scheduled.
Group campus visits are not offered during the spring term, except for a day in March or April specifically for students admitted for the following academic year. All individually scheduled visits will be subject to faculty and program availability and will not include the breadth of events as the planned, group visits.
For students early in their undergraduate career, or needing prerequisite or leveling course work, please include this information when requesting a visit.
