What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
at the university of kansas, due dates, for assignments or exams, are set. for some courses they vary, but for large ones, missing a due date almost always means zero credit. professors expect that as adults in college, you should be able to handle your own schedule, and plan accordingly.
Samantha from Villa Park, IL
This part is totally up to you. If you challenge yourself and make the best of this educational experience, you will come out with 5 star education, but that is really on you. Nobody is going to make you work hard, and they shouldn't have to.
Jordan from Littleton, CO
for as much financial aid that is available, ku is definitely top notch in academics.
adrienne from dodge city, ks
At the University of Kansas, the academic rigor is not proportional to the standards for admittance. Classes are challenging and GPA requirements for professional schools are not for slackers. The University of Kansas has one of the best Journalism, Engineering, and Med schools in the nation, and the academic rigor is higher than some public schools because of that.
Zach from Overland Park, KS
Being a engineering major, my class are pretty tough. Although, that can be said for any major at respectable levels. Compared to community colleges, KU is a little more work. KU has top notch teachers in many departments that have been doing their work for a long time.
