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 2016 summer sessions, 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 use the Registration Help Line: (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. Most non-degree students are considered "Lifelong Learners" and include the following groups: Donovan Scholars, students who have already earned degrees, and non-traditional students who wish to begin their studies as non-degree students in order to be considered for degree-seeking status later. Other students eligible to enter the University in a non-degree status include visiting students from other colleges and universities and high school students of exceptional ability.


Housing Options


Students participating in either or both summer sessions have the option to live on campus. For more information on how to apply to live with us this summer, visit our website, or contact us at ukhousing@uky.edu or (859) 257-1866!
