***COVID-19 GUIDELINES FOR KPU CARDS: To ensure the health and safety of everyone, do not request a KPU Card unless you need one. ***

Currently registered students are eligible to submit for their KPU Card 1 month before their classes begin. Requests submitted early will not be processed until 1 month before classes begin.
