Expand your knowledge at ESU

Students wanting to take nine or less credit hours per semester at Emporia State who do not have a bachelor's degree or higher will need to fill out the Special Enrollment Form. Those who do have a bachelor’s degree or higher will work with the Graduate School.

If you are 60+ and interested in auditing a class for free, work with the Registration Office.

Step-by-step guide to applying

  1. Apply to ESU and pay the $10 application fee.
  2. Once you are admitted, you will need to activate your Hornet365 student account to set your password. Your student E number and username can be found on the first-time user page. Your temporary Hornet365 password is Esu******! (the asterisks are the last 6 digits of your student E number followed by the exclamation mark.)
