  • Log into your application status page.
  • Select Reply to Offer of Admission (you may have new documents under Status Update you have to review first).
  • Pay your $350 non-refundable enrollment deposit, either a) online through your application status page by electronic funds transfer or credit card, or b) mail a check to us (remember: that might take longer!).
  • Once you deposit, you will receive a confirmation email with your student ID number.
  • NOTE: Due to delays in receiving FAFSA data from the Department of Education, we are extending K’s commitment deadline to June 1. This extension is intended to ensure that you and your family have enough time to review and consider your financial aid options. We anticipate financial aid packages will be available to students in April.

Already deposited? Mark your Calendar for what’s next

Your application status page will change over to a matriculation checklist, with several items you will need to complete, such as activating your KNET ID, in the summer before you arrive on campus. Key items include, but are not limited to, the following actions:

Activate your KNET ID/Check your campus e-mail

Your KNET ID gives you access to many campus resources, including Hornet Hive, Hornet HQ, Moodle, Handshake, and your campus e-mail. Use the Activating your KNET Network Account – Information Services page to set up your account and access these portals.

Once activated, log into your campus e-mail and check your portal regularly, especially your campus e-mail. Campus resources will start to send important information through Hornet Hive and your campus e-mail, rather than your personal e-mail address.
