Fall Notice:

The Fall 2020 application deadline has been extended to August 14th.

About Online Classes


KU is providing online options for students who are not able to study on campus due to COVID-19. If you are an international student with a strong internet connection, online learning is an excellent way to begin your chosen degree program without delay.

Online Course Options

KU has hundreds of high-quality online options that include both academic and English language courses, starting at all English proficiency levels.  Classes are AAU-accredited and will be offered by faculty and support staff trained in teaching online course content. Students can enjoy a variety of course formats, including video lectures, virtual office hours and online class discussions.

Virtual Support

KU’s virtual support services allow students to access tutoring and writing resources as well as meet with academic advisors to ensure online success. KU’s expert immigration advisors will provide the support you need to transition to on-campus study when the time is right.  

FALL 2020

We are hoping all international students will be able to join us on campus for the fall semester. However, KU is providing online class options to ensure that those who are unable to travel due to COVID-19 have the option to enroll online and begin their degree programs without delay.

Students will not need a visa until they transition to on-campus study due to not physically being on campus. At this time, KU is hoping students will be able to transition to campus in Fall 2020 but is also prepared to offer online options as needed. 

Visa and Documentation Guidance

KU immigration advisors will work with students on necessary immigration documents and visa guidance when making this transition. The university continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will notify students as new information becomes available.

Fall Extended Deadline

Fall 2020 application deadline: extended to August 14 (all materials must be received by our office by this date)
