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 2016 summer sessions, 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 use the Registration Help Line: (859) 257-7173.
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. Most non-degree students are considered "Lifelong Learners" and include the following groups: Donovan Scholars, students who have already earned degrees, and non-traditional students who wish to begin their studies as non-degree students in order to be considered for degree-seeking status later. Other students eligible to enter the University in a non-degree status include visiting students from other colleges and universities and high school students of exceptional ability.
Looking for a place to live while taking classes at this summer? It just makes sense that you would live right where you are taking classes, on campus! Housing will be available for both summer session I and II, depending on which session you are taking classes. Summer Housing will be located in one of the newest residence halls on campus, Woodland Glen I.
