Important Application Information

Students are evaluated holistically on GPA, test scores, leadership, extracurricular involvement, and fit for the CLM program, as evidenced by essay responses. Admission to CLM is a selective process. The minimum GPA for consideration is 2.8, but meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to the program. 

If a student has between a 2.25 and 2.8 GPA or for students whose coursework is over 10 years old and below the required 2.8, there is an option to “Petition for Exceptional Consideration” for admission.   If the student believes they have a strong case for admission, they may submit a petition to be reviewed by the Program Director & CLM Admissions team at the time of application. Petitioners also have the option to indicate if they wish to be present for review of their petition by checking a box on the form. For access to the Petition for Exceptional Consideration, please contact CLM Program Director, Dr. Sarah Kercsmar, at sarah.kercsmar@uky.edu.

Please spend time and be thoughtful when writing your essays as they are an important part of your CLM application. Be sure to provide specific examples to support your ideas that will help us get to know you better as a person and also be sure to edit your essays for mechanical errors prior to submitting them. With each essay you write, help us to learn something new about you, your experiences, and your goals.
