  • Open Houses for Seniors
    • Saturday, October 13th and  Friday, November 16th

    • These are great events to tour campus, meet with different academic colleges including the Lewis Honors College, and learn about financial aid/scholarships.     
  •  Scholarships
    • We have updated our scholarships this year and have released more details about exact offers to help students plan financially. Scholarship sheets are attached.
    • UK is a member institution of RaiseMe to help students identify scholarship opportunities and stay on track for future college funding during high school.
  • Application Information
    • Our letter of recommendation is still optional.
      • For most students, we encourage them not to submit a letter of recommendation. A recommendation letter would be helpful if the student has a learning disability, difficult family history, or other situation that would need explanation on their behalf to shed some light on the academic credentials.
    • We are in the process of onboarding with the Coalition Application, but for now we encourage students to use the Common Application or the UK application at applyuk.com.
  • Upcoming Deadlines
    • December 1: early action admission, academic/competitive scholarships, Lewis Honors College, priority deadline for William C. Parker.
    • February 15: regular decision admission (no consideration for academic/competitive scholarships or Lewis Honors College), William C. Parker Diversity Scholarship  (February 15th is application deadline however early application is encouraged)

    • On September 14, UK kicked off a new campaign branded “Kentucky Can.” Funds raised will benefit students in many ways, including student financial assistance and opportunities for research, Education Abroad, and internships.
