How to Register


Newly Admitted Undergraduate Students

Freshman, Transfer, and Readmission students will register during an advising conference.

Non-Degree students are not required to attend an advising conference, but may do so if they wish. If you chose not to attend an advising conference, refer to the information in your acceptance letter for registration dates. 


Currently Enrolled Undergraduate Students
Priority registration for upcoming semesters is held every November and April. Students are assigned a priority registration window. During this time, students may register for courses, add⁄drop, review their schedules, and perform other functions.


Before you register:

  • Meet with your academic advisor to have your advisor hold lifted. You must have this hold lifted before you can register. (Non-degree students do not have an advisor hold.)
  • Check your account for any stops or holds. To do this, log on to your myUK account, select “myInfo” from the top of the screen, and then “my Stops and Holds” from the menu on the left. You must resolve any stops or holds before you can register.

New Graduate Students
New Graduate Students will register using myUK. New Graduate student advisor holds will be lifted automatically on registration dates unless otherwise specified by your graduate program. Follow these instructions (PDF) for using myUK.

  • Spring 2014: New Graduate students register January 8 - 13. Post-baccalaureate students register January 9 - 13.


Currently Enrolled Graduate Students

Register using myUK during your assigned three-day priority registration window.
