  • Classes: Online classes will continue the week of March 16.

Find information about virtual Business Career Fair events at this page, and resources and information for prospective students and their families at this page.
    • Please note: The University of Kansas hopes to conduct Commencement activities as planned. However, if ceremonies present a risk to public health, the university will consider alternative ways to celebrate spring 2020 graduates. Please keep in mind that the situation is fluid. Along with the university, the School of Business will do its best to share the latest developments and how they will affect Commencement and other recognition events at KU. Updates will be posted on the Commencement website and on coronavirus.ku.edu
