An international student comes to KU from either an affiliated Partner University or as a visiting student from an unaffiliated institution
* Students from Partner University
- Many of our visiting students are affiliated with one of KU's partner institutions, in which case the terms of the visit are defined by the governing Partnership Agreement, usually in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) or Memorandum of Agreement MOA).
- Students coming from a partner institution must first be nominated by their home university. Contact your university's Study Abroad or International Affairs Office for application information and details.
- Often, the Partnership Agreement is based on a principle of a reciprocal exchange of students and tuition is waived (however, personal expenses remain the obligation of the student).
The governing Partnership Agreement may be limited to the academic program and courses offered at a specific Faculty/Department at KU. Students may petition for special permission to take classes in another Faculty/Department, in which case additional fees may be required.
* Students from Non-Partner Institution / KU Student Exchange Program (KUSEP)
Many Visiting Students from non-partner institutions come to KU under special arrangements, such as the programs arranged by Asia Exchange. Asia Exchange students should contact Asia Exchange directly for details. (See https://asiaexchange.org)
Visiting Students from non-partner institutions are warmly welcomed to apply directly and may seek individual admission under our KU Student Exchange Program (KUSEP).
- *Visiting KUSEP Students must first submit their personal application, seeking admission to only one of KU's International/English Language academic programs.
NOTE: A Visiting Student who is admitted to a specified Faculty/Department should take the majority of their course work at that host Faculty/Department; however, the student may petition for permission to take a few classes from another Faculty/Department.
