Withdrawing from UK

 

Currently Enrolled Students

If you wish to withdraw from UK prior to the first day of the semester, you must drop all your courses through myUK. Withdrawing from all registered courses prior to the first day of the fall or spring semesters will result in your admission being withdrawn from the University of Kentucky for that semester and subsequent semesters. Students wishing to return to UK at a later date must submit a new application here

Once the semester has begun, and up until the date to withdraw with a “W”, the student must submit a Notification/Authorization of Withdrawal Form to the Registrar’s Office. This form can be completed in person in the Registrar’s Office or can be requested from the student records staff below from your UK email. The date the form is received will serve as the official date of withdrawal.
