Exceptional high school students may be offered admission to UK after a thorough evaluation of their academic record. Students seeking such consideration must submit an application form, official scores from the ACT Assessment or SAT I: Reasoning Test, an official high school transcript, and a letter from their high school principal or guidance counselor stating the benefit to the student of entering college prior to high school completion.
Please note that a dual-credit program requires a partnership between a high school and the University of Kentucky; however, students wishing to take individual courses outside of a dual-credit program should work with their guidance counselors on an arrangement that will award them high-school credit for taking a UK course. UK's current list of dual-credit programs can be found here.
