Note: New entering freshmen will attend a one-day Summer

registration materials will be mailed approximately April 1. A more comprehensive Fall Orientation will occur
later in the summer, approximately the start of the Fall semester. Details about the Fall Orientation program
will come from the office of the Dean of Student Life.
When to Apply: Currently enrolled high school students
should apply between the beginning of their senior year and four weeks prior to the start
of the term in which they are seeking admission.
Individuals who have completed high
school should submit their application at least four weeks prior to the start of the term
in which they wish to be admitted. Students seeking various forms of
financial aid should submit their application for admission as early as possible.
For the convenience of new students attending a Summer Session, UNK has an Open
Admissions policy which does not require students to meet full admission criteria. The
application form and admissions application fee must be submitted prior to registration.
However, PRIOR to their next registration (for a Fall or Spring
Semester), these students MUST apply for official admission to UNK
through the Office of Admissions.
