Late Enrollment

Late Enrollment at the University of Kansas begins at 12:00 a.m. on the first instructional day of the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. The enrollment process varies depending on the instructional day in which you enroll.

Caution: Although the University of Kansas offers late enrollment you should enroll as early as possible. Waiting to enroll can result in fewer sections to choose from and some classes may not be available. If you are interested in enrolling late, speak to the instructor as soon as possible to see if late enrollment is permitted and what content you have missed.


Period 1 (Days 1-5)

This checklist provides an overview of late enrollment for the 1st - 5th instructional days of the semester at the Lawrence/Edwards campus.

A $150 late enrollment fee applies.

Caution: You may petition to late enroll after the 5th instructional day of the semester/term, but the requirements are more stringent, enrollment is offline, and more classes are closed. Please see the Period 2 section below for more information.

  1. Meet with your advisor. Declared majors - see your School/College for advising information. Undeclared majors see the University Advising Center.
