Invited Students

We appreciate your interest in the Human Health Sciences (HHS) program. There has been an overwhelming response from those invited to the program. We are at capacity for the Fall 2023 cohort. As your offer letter states,  “…we purposely limit the size of our cohort, and our spaces go on a first-come, first-served basis." 

We encourage you to reapply to the program in the future. While we know this is disappointing news, you are admitted to the University of Kentucky. There are many major options from which you can choose to achieve your goal of entering a medical profession.  

You have already been placed into your second choice major, as indicated on your application for admission.  If you would like to evaluate your major options, your UK admissions counselor is available to work with you to select the right major. 

We wish you the best in your educational journey.

Program candidates will receive notification of their HHS program final admission status via their email address by the listed Notification Date. Please note, for new and transfer students, the HHS admissions status is not necessarily the same as UK general admissions status - these students must be sure they abide by those respective requirements and deadlines as well.

If you are accepted to the University of Kentucky, you will first be placed in the secondary major choice that you selected on your UK application. This is because our HHS program notification date is typically later than UK’s notification date. You will be notified about your HHS admission status by the date specified on the admissions timeline.

To confirm your seat in the HHS program, you MUST accept your seat by completing the Statement of Intent. The link to the Statement of Intent can be found in your invitation notification sent to your email address.

All students who commit to the HHS program will also be required to complete:

Students who commit to the HHS program will receive additional information via email regarding immunization expectations and background check information closer to the start of the semester.
