Which describes you?

I took a Blueprint course the semester prior to my next course.

If you are taking Jayhawk Blueprint courses during consecutive (back-to-back) semesters, you only need to complete the Non-Degree Seeking student application the first semester in which you are taking a Jayhawk Blueprint course.

For example, if you are currently enrolled in a Jayhawk Blueprint course and are planning to take a course the upcoming semester, you do not need to complete the Non-Degree Seeking student application again.

I have never taken a Jayhawk Blueprint course or had a break in semesters since my last Blueprint course.

If you took a Jayhawk Blueprint course one semester, did not take a Jayhawk Blueprint course the next semester, and then want to take a Jayhawk Blueprint course again, you will need to complete the Non-Degree Seeking application again because you have not been enrolled in consecutive semesters.

For example, if you took a Jayhawk Blueprint course in the past but did not take a Jayhawk Blueprint course the semester prior to when you want to take your next course, you need to complete the Non-Degree Seeking student application again because there was a break in your KU enrollment.

If you are applying to KU for your first Jayhawk Blueprint course or you have had a break in the semesters in which you took a Jayhawk Blueprint course, follow the steps below.
