Forward Your KU Email

A KU email account is automatically created for you after you are admitted as a non-degree seeking student and once you have set up your KU Online ID. Important information will be sent to your KU email account such as tuition bills and payment deadlines. To keep from missing valuable communication, you need to either check your KU email often or forward KU emails to another non-school email account that you check regularly, such as Gmail or Outlook.
