2020 Summer Session

Summer School at UK welcomes new and continuing University of Kentucky students, visiting students from other colleges and universities, teachers, and practicing professionals who take courses to advance their credentials. 


The Summer Session

May 12 - August 6, 2020

UK’s summer school in 2020 consists of a single 12-week term. Most courses will not meet for the entire twelve weeks but will follow standard meeting blocks: 1st 4-weeks, 2nd 4-weeks, 3rd 4-weeks; 1st 6-weeks, 2nd 6-weeks, 1st 8-weeks, etc.

Registrar Recommended Course Timeframes

Although departments and colleges can offer their course sections at varying lengths, the Registrar's Office recommends the following timeframes:


1st 4 Weeks          May 12 to June 9 
2nd 4 Weeks June 10 to July 8    
3rd 4 Weeks    July 9 to August 5
1st 6 Weeks May 12 to June 23    
2nd 6 Weeks    June 25 to August 6
1st 8 Weeks    May 12 to July 7
2nd 8 Weeks    June 11 to August 6

Any course that follows one of the above Registrar recommended course timeframes will have unique deadlines. Please check the specific course section in the course catalog and myUK GPS for these dates.

Current UK Students

Current UK students should first meet with their advisor to discuss degree plans and options. If you are currently enrolled and plan to attend the 2020 summer session, you should priority register during your assigned window. Additional dates to add summer courses include Add/Drop. For further information, please contact your advisor, or contact UK Registration at registration@uky.edu or 859-257-7173.


Non-UK Students

A goal of the University of Kentucky is to provide appropriate access to academic courses for students desiring to continue their education without seeking a degree. Non-degree status affords an opportunity for individuals to pursue lifelong learning without the structure of degree-seeking status.

For more information about applying as a Non-Degree student, visit: www.uky.edu/admission/non-degree


Housing Options

Any UK or BCTC student, no matter their summer enrollment status, can live in the Summer School Hall. There is no minimum credit hours required. Students can choose their expected arrival and departure dates during the 12-week session, based on the dates they are enrolled.
Meal plan options will be similar to those offered during the summer of 2019. UK Dining will have two to three traditional meal plans with flex dollars as well as flex-only meal plan options for students to choose from.

For more information on how to apply for summer housing, visit the Campus Housing website , or contact them at ukhousing@uky.edu or (859) 257-1866.
