Coming to KU
You must complete the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS), the Applied English Center (AEC), and the Student Health Services (SHS) check-ins, and have cleared any other additional enrollment HOLDS that you may have before you will be able to enroll. When you are allowed to enroll will be contingent upon when you have completed all of these processes. Those who are participating in the "YOU at KU" International Student Orientation who have completed all of the necessary processes will have an opportunity to enroll earlier than those who are not participating in the orientation. A late enrollment fee of $150 will be applied beginning on the first day of class for each term.
