FAQs for students and families

Why am I not listed on the graduate list/honor roll? 

The most common reason that a student’s name does not appear with other candidates for degree or honor roll recipients is that a hold has been placed on your directory information, which means we can’t release your name, graduation and/or award status or hometown. This can be updated in Enroll & Pay, and then you can contact us at kunews@ku.edu.

I am a proud parent/grandparent of a KU student and have questions about if or when their information will be published. Can KU News Service help me? 

To protect their privacy, we need to talk directly with our students about their academic accomplishments and hometown news preferences. Students should contact us at kunews@ku.edu if we can post and share their information.

When will the next list of KU graduates be released?
Names of summer and fall 2021 and spring 2022 graduates will be published in late July once degrees are posted by the Registrar’s Office. 

Is the Commencement program listing the same as the KU News Service listing?
No, these are processed separately, in part because KU News Service publishes names by term. Please make sure your name is designated as releasable and that your name and hometown city preferences are updated in Enroll & Pay.

When are the spring and fall dean’s list/honor rolls published?
KU News Service publishes the honor roll each shortly after receipt from the Registrar’s Office, usually during the second or third week of February (fall) and July (spring). Some students will be notified of their school honors a few weeks before the full university list is available for KU News Service to publish.
