Every applicant who was not admitted to the University of Kentucky has had their application file considered through guidelines established by the University Senate Rules and published in the University Bulletin. It is because of the thoroughness of the process that it is unusual for an admission decision to be reversed. Therefore, for an appeal to have merit, it must bring to light new compelling academic and/or personal information as well as details pertaining to extenuating circumstances that were not addressed in the original application. The appeals process is not a re-review of an existing applicant file and appeals will not be accepted from applicants who are not submitting new information.
