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.  

Spring 2021 Online Classes

As many international students are still unable to travel due to circumstances related to COVID-19, KU is providing online class options to ensure that they have the option to enroll online and begin their degree programs without delay.

Incoming students can begin their studies completely online for Spring 2021. Students will enroll in online classes and study remotely for the semester. Then, students will transition to on-campus classes at a later semester depending on their academic coursework and COVID-19 related restrictions.

Special Tuition Price Option for Spring 2021

KU is offering all international and domestic students the option to enroll in the KU College Online Freshmen Bridge program to start their degree online with quality courses at a lower price.
Students pay a flat rate of $398 per credit hour ($1,194/ 3-credit hour course) which is about 55% less than the standard tuition cost for an international student.

Visa and Documentation Guidance

Students will not need a visa until they transition to on-campus study due to not physically being on campus. KU immigration advisors will work with students on necessary immigration documents and visa guidance when making this transition.

KU continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will notify students as new information becomes available.
