Request a Campus Visit

We're excited to have you visit us! Please use this form to help us create the most personalized visit just for you. Be on the lookout for your itinerary via email. In the meantime, please contact Brandy Ernzen at bernzen@ku.edu with questions.

** This will ONLY be used to relay last-minute itinerary changes. We do not cold-call prospective students!
KU ISP offers rolling admissions, meaning you can apply for fall or spring. Don't forget to include the year!
Please provide us with your top three dates to visit. We'll do everything we can to ensure our folks are available to meet with you on your preferred date, but having alternatives helps! If possible, please give us two weeks to set up a campus visit. Also, we encourage prospective students to visit while classes are in session. You'll get a much better feel for the campus environment and have more access to faculty and current students. Classes are in session January 22, 2019, through May 17, 2019.
What time would you like to start your visit? To get the most out of your visit, we suggest dedicating a full day. However, we will work around your schedule.
When would you like to end your official meetings with KU ISP?
What would you like to do "when you grow up"?
Please let us know if there are faculty or staff you'd like to meet with during your visit.
Please let us know if you'd like to meet with units such as financial aid, the Applied English Center, First Nations Student Association advisors, accommodations, etc., while you're here.
Many graduate-level courses meet once per week for three hours. Sometimes these courses are taught in the evenings as well.
We're no strangers to parents, spouses or families visiting! We're also happy to help recommend fun activities for your guests if you'd prefer to meet with faculty and staff on your own.
We can work with our on-campus partners to provide services for visual, hearing, mobility and other accessibility needs. Please let us know what accommodations you need to get the most out of your time with us.

Dawnland Film Screening and Q&A Panel
Thursday, March 7 | 7 p.m.
Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St.
Lawrence, KS
For most of the 20th century, government agents systematically forced Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families. Many children experienced devastating emotional and physical harm by adults who mistreated them and tried to erase their cultural identity. The film follows the Maine Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s travels to contemporary Wabanaki communities to witness intimate, sacred moments of truth-telling and healing, and reveals the untold narrative of Indigenous child removal in the United States. A panel Q&A will follow.
Free and open to the public. Light refreshments offered. Sponsored by the KU Indigenous Cultures Festival, the Ermal Garinger Academic Resource Center, the KU School of Social Welfare and the Lawrence Public Library.
