2018 Summer Session

Summer School at UK welcomes new and continuing University of Kentucky students, visiting students from other colleges and universities, teachers, and practicing professionals who take courses to advance their credentials. 


The Summer Session

May 8 - August 2, 2018

UK’s summer school in 2018 consists of a single 12-week term. Most courses will not meet for the entire twelve weeks but will follow standard meeting blocks: 1st 4-weeks, 2nd 4-weeks, 3rd 4-weeks; 1st 6-weeks, 2nd 6-weeks, 1st 8-weeks, etc.


Current UK Students

Current UK students should first meet with their advisor to discuss degree plans and options. If you are currently enrolled and plan to attend the 2018 summer session, you should priority register during your assigned window. Additional dates to add summer courses include Add/Drop. For further information, please contact your advisor, or contact Registration Help at: registration@uky.edu


Non-UK Students

A goal of the University of Kentucky is to provide appropriate access to academic courses for students desiring to continue their education without seeking a degree. Non-degree status affords an opportunity for individuals to pursue lifelong learning without the structure of degree-seeking status.


Housing Options

Any UK or BCTC student, no matter their summer enrollment status, can live in the Summer School Hall. There is no minimum credit hours required. Students can choose their expected arrival and departure dates during the 12-week session, based on the dates they are enrolled.
Meal plan options will be similar to those offered during the summer of 2017. UK Dining will have two to three traditional meal plans with flex dollars as well as flex-only meal plan options for students to choose from.

For more information on how to apply for summer housing, visit the Campus Housing web site , or contact them at ukhousing@uky.edu or (859) 257-1866.
