First-time Freshmen and Transfer Students

Prospective applicants not currently enrolled at UK (first-time freshmen and transfer students), will apply through the University of Kentucky central admissions application sources.  

Currently Enrolled UK Students

Students enrolled at UK and wish to be considered as an internal transfer student (change of major) must submit a supplemental application. We are currently accepting applications for Spring and Fall 2021.

The application must be submitted in one sitting.  There is no way to save your work.  Ensure you have all materials and essay responses ready prior to beginning the application. Application materials received after the posted deadline will not be considered in admission review.

Important Application Information

  • Admission to HHS is a selective process. Students are evaluated comprehensively on GPA, test scores, leadership and extracurricular involvement, and fit for the HHS program as evidenced by essay responses.
  • Consideration is given to those with an unweighted high school grade-point-average of 3.0 or higher and a 23 ACT composite or equivalent SAT.
  • Please spend time and be thoughtful when writing your essays as they are an important part of your HHS 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.
  • Please note that your application will be reviewed based on the information supplied at the time of submission. No supplemental materials (i.e., test scores, updated course grades or updated GPA, updated list of activities, etc.) will be accepted post-submission of your application.
  • If you want your application reviewed for selection into the Human Health Sciences program after you submitted your university application, you will need to contact your admissions officer for additional application information and requirements.
