Information for Graduating Students

Commencement 2018

Congratulations to the Class of 2019!

We’re excited to welcome you to the alumni network. Watch your inbox for more information about upcoming Commencement events and your complimentary one-year membership.

Update your information

No matter how far you fly, keep one foot in the nest. Make sure your alumni record at the University of Kansas stays up-to-date with your current contact information, and send us your new information whenever you relocate. You can also help by providing new information when you change jobs, get married or have kids.

The Alumni Association is the sole guardian of the records of graduates and former students. You don’t have to be an Alumni Association member to update your record, and the information will only be used for official University and alumni purposes.

Submit a Class Note to let your classmates know about your career changes and achievements, and it could be published in a future issue of the magazine!

These groups get together to watch games, enjoy KU camaraderie, recruit the best incoming students to KU and work to strengthen the University. All official alumni networks and watch clubs also have Facebook groups.
