All incoming freshmen are encouraged to go online and apply for admission by the priority deadline of Friday, Feb. 15. However, officials stress that this is only a priority deadline and applications will still be accepted after this date.
To find out more about applying for admission to UK, watch this "how to" video.
Feb. 15 is also the priority deadline for the application for federal need-based financial aid including scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study opportunities. Students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible!
The FAFSA is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Students/parents who have not finished their 2012 taxes can fill out the FAFSA with estimated tax information. They will just need to update their forms on the same Web site after completing their taxes.
For all the details you need to know about applying for financial aid at UK, watch this "how to" video.
The important dates continue for prospective students into March.
For fall 2013, the Flagship and Provost Scholarships are automatically awarded to students with qualifying scores based on their admission application and information. However, those students must be admitted and have their qualifying scores sent to UK by March 1.
In addition to these automatic scholarships, UK offers a variety of other scholarships for prospective students including diversity, departmental and program scholarships. A scholarship database website allows students to explore all of the opportunities available with one easy search.
Students should pay careful attention to the deadlines for these awards. Click here to find out more information about these scholarships.
The financial aid priority date for returning and transfer students is March 15, 2013.
