Your first year

Tie up the following loose ends and you’ll be all set for your first day on campus.

Your first-year to-do list

  • Submit your immunization history

    The easiest way is through your student health portal, which you’ll gain access to three days after enrolling at Orientation.

  • Upload your KU card info

    If you haven’t already, submit your personal details and photo for your KU ID card.

  • Pick a parking plan

    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.

  • Confirm a dining plan

    Review your options, or the perks of the plan that you’ve chosen.


What’s in store for your first year?

Your first year starts with a weeklong campus welcome — and promises all kinds of surprises from there. Here’s a preview of what’s to come:
