Admitted Student Days

We're excited you're considering attending the University of Kentucky this fall! Our Admitted Student Day program will allow you to learn more about your next steps, gather valuable advice from current students in your anticipated area of study, and tour campus. During the student’s college meeting, family and guests will attend a session with the UK Parent and Family Association.

These visits are reserved for admitted students. You'll log into the registration form using the same email and password used when you applied to UK.
