Attend K Week International Orientation

There are three important events you must attend during Orientation Week:

Check-in Workshop
This workshop is required to report your arrival to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Failure to attend a check-in workshop will result in the cancellation of your visa status, and you will not be able to register for classes. Bring the following documents to your Check-in Workshop:

Placement Testing
International students will take placement tests on August 18 and 19. These tests will determine your placement in math, science, or English courses.  Placement tests must be completed before meeting with your academic advisor. Students who do not complete the required placement testing will be assigned to the beginning levels of English writing and reading, and to pre-calculus (Algebra) courses, until test results indicate otherwise.

Mandatory Orientation Day
The orientation session will prepare you for life at UK and give you an opportunity to ask current students and staff questions.

Undergraduate Advising Conference
Meet with your academic adviser to choose your classes for the semester. Confirm your advising conference here.

Graduate students should meet with their department's Director of Graduate Studies.
