Online or Paper Application Process – Your Choice

Prior to enrollment, please complete a brief Application for Graduate Workshop Attendance for the term in which you plan to enroll.

Paper Application for Graduate Workshop Attendance is quick and simple. Click on the “Paper Application” link, enter the required information and press “submit.” Your application will reach us immediately.

If you are a returning student, please wait 24 hours. You will then be activated to enroll and provide payment through your Self Service Banner (SSB) account at any time.

New students will be notified by email in 2-3 business days of their student activation, and will be issued a Self Service Banner (SSB) account login and password. Once you have received this information, you may enter your SSB account to enroll and provide payment.

If at any point, you need assistance or have forgotten your login(s), please call us during regular business hours at 316-295-5516. We are happy to assist!

We also offer an Online Application for Graduate Workshop Attendance that requests the same information, but requires a link sign-in halfway through the process for completion. This application “populates” previously entered information following initial set-up as a new applicant. For first time online users, select “new applicant” and complete the steps. Following this, you only need to sign in for future terms, as previously entered information will automatically appear. For a visual guide with screenshots, view a PDF guide. This process requires access to your email for password information during the initial set-up.


Friends University has been the “gift that keeps on giving.” I continue to be impressed by the variety shown in the teacher workshop offerings. They are timely and critical to strengthening the level of expertise in my teaching craft. Based on these workshops and the summer graduate class offerings, I am able to return to my school in the fall with impactful lessons, technology strategies to enhance my instruction and leadership ideas for my team.
