Visiting Us

The Bioengineering Graduate Program staff is happy to work with all prospective students in determining the fit between the student and the Program. In order to determine this, we feel that visiting our campus in Lawrence and the Medical Center campus in Kansas City is a very important step. In order to facilitate your visit to KU, there are two main options:

The first, and most preferred, option entails simply applying for Fall admission to the program. If you are admitted, it is highly likely that you will be invited to participate in Visitation Days in late February prior to the Fall semester of your intended matriculation. A portion of the costs for your travel, accommodations and meals will be reimbursed to you if you participate in Visitation Days. This organized visitation opportunity will allow you time to gather a great deal of first-hand information which we hope will help you in making a final decision about whether to attend KU.

The second option is making arrangements to visit us on your own, outside of organized events. With early notification, we will do our best to work with you to provide information and schedule appointments with faculty when possible. Please contact us if you feel that this is the best option for you

Contact Information

Please contact the Bioengineering Program Assistant, bioe@ku.edu or 785-864-5258, to schedule a visit or with questions about the bioengineering application process.
