Loan Deferment Forms
Can be provided as long as the student does not have a privacy flag in the student information system.
Good Standing Letters
Good Standing Letters are required to take classes at another institution during the summer or may be required for one semester before returning to UK. They are not given if a stop has been recorded on the student's records in SAP. It is okay to release a Good Standing Letter if a student is on probation.
A GPA of 2.0 or “C” average is needed for a Letter of Good Standing.
The Registrar's Office can accept a written request for a Good Standing Letter, if it includes the student's signature and mailing address and/or a fax number they wish the letter to be forwarded to.
Good Student Discounts
This is a discount on car insurance. Students are required to be full-time for the semester.
It is based on a 3.0 GPA for the immediate preceding semester. The cumulative GPA is not considered.
Students need to show their picture ID before the Registrar's Office will complete the form since we are releasing confidential information. We can also complete the Good Student Discount form by written request with the student's signature, if the form is faxed (to number (859) 257-7160) or mailed to this office.
