Persons whose previous records indicate an ability to succeed with advanced work may be admitted to the Graduate School through the Graduate Program in Urban Planning. Ordinarily, admission requires a bachelor's degree and a grade point average of approximately 3.0 from the University of Kansas or another institution with substantially equivalent requirements for the bachelor's degree.

Decisions on admissions are made on the basis of the information supplied in the application materials described below. Graduate Record Examination scores are required for all students beginning Spring 2008. Thus, the faculty may be better equipped in evaluating the student's prospects for graduate study in the field of planning at K.U. All students entering on probation or provisional status must begin their studies in the Fall semester. Students accepted to regular status may begin in the Spring semester.
