Jayhawk Blueprint: Don't just make college plans...make college progress.

Get started with college today!

Jayhawk Blueprint is a partnership between the University of Kansas and Lawrence Public Schools to offer college courses at a discounted rate in the high schools where college and high school credit is earned simultaneously.

High school students who enroll in the program will:

Take college courses while still in high school

Courses are taught at Lawrence High and Free State High School by qualified high school teachers. Upon successfully completing the course, students earn both high school and college credit.

Earn transferable college credit

For each course a student successfully completes, they will earn credit from KU. All courses are transferable to Kansas public 2-year and 4-year institutions of higher education and may transfer to other colleges, depending on transfer requirements.

Experience college-level coursework and learning

Jayhawk Blueprint courses are taught similarly to how they are taught on campus, giving students experience with college-level courses and helping ease the future transition to college.

Access KU courses at a discounted rate

Jayhawk Blueprint students benefit from a reduced tuition rate, set at one-third of KU's current undergraduate tuition. Course textbooks/materials are provided at no charge. In addition, there is need-based funding available for those who qualify for free/reduced meals through their high school.
