About KU Edwards Campus

The University of Kansas has held a tradition of excellence for over a century. KU began sharing that tradition to Greater Kansas City in the 1970s by providing courses to working professionals. In 1993 KU opened its Edwards Campus, leaving a permanent presence to providing growth and education to Kansas City's community. In the last 21 years, the KU Edwards Campus has contributed more than $500 million to the Johnson County economy. In 2008, the KU Edwards Campus became proud partners in the Johnson County Education Research Triangle.

We pride ourselves on putting the needs of students first. We have a wide variety of graduate and undergraduate degree completion programs for students to choose from. And we provide late afternoon and evening classes to help our students balance the responsibilities of work and family.

Courses at the Edwards Campus earn the same credit as those taught on the main campus in Lawrence, Kan. with our students earning KU degrees. Because the University of Kansas enjoys a national and international reputation, our students can be sure their hard work will earn them the respect of current and potential employers no matter where their career takes them.
