Your first-year to-do list
The easiest way is through your student health portal, which you’ll gain access to three days after enrolling at Orientation.
If you haven’t already, submit your personal details and photo for your KU ID card.
Parking permits are first come, first served. If you plan to bring a vehicle to campus and haven’t purchased a permit, you should do so as soon as possible.
Review your options, or the perks of the plan that you’ve chosen.
You’ll use your KU email for all official university communications.
If you haven’t already, send KU your final, official transcripts, or updated exam scores.
If you’re living on campus, get to know community opportunities, roommates, and more.
Know the amount of aid to expect, how you’ll receive it, and where you can pay your bill.
After Orientation, you'll round out the experience with a course that covers important first-year topics, including financial aid and fees, academic opportunities, and campus involvement. You are required to complete the course prior to the start of the semester.
To access your course, sign in to Canvas using your KU ID and password, then select DiscoverKU from the My Courses section on the front page.
