These offerings primarily include those international programs taught by UK faculty. These programs are typically offered during the summer and winter intersession but are increasingly being offered during the academic year. Students earn UK credits and may only have to pay for just one credit of regular UK tuition (ISP599) as well.
One of the main benefits of UK Sponsored programs is that students register and receive credit directly for UK courses instead of transferring foreign credit back into UK from abroad. With UK Sponsored programs, there is no need to establish UK course equivalencies, and the credit will be factored into the student's GPA.
After registering as a visiting student at UK, students from other institutions may participate in many of these programs as well.
