Applying for admission to UK just got easier.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 30, 2018) — There’s a new way to become a Wildcat!

The Office of Undergraduate Admission recently announced that the University of Kentucky is now accepting applications through the Coalition for College Access’ MyCoalition application. This website is an exciting new opportunity for students to learn about everything that UK has to offer and to start their UK journey.

“We are excited to launch the application for admission as well as promote the other college preparation tools provided through MyCoalition,” Scott McDonald, UK’s dean of undergraduate admission, said. “We enjoy working with prospective students and high school personnel across the Commonwealth and country to promote the value of a college education — especially at the University of Kentucky.”

The coalition was founded in 2015 by college leaders who wanted to make the college application process more accessible and affordable for all students. Since its inception, the coalition has grown to include more than 140 colleges and universities across the United States.

MyCoalition is not just another way to apply to college. The site contains a myriad of free college-planning tools to help make college a reality for all students. When students log on to the website, they can upload important documents and information from high school, connect and collaborate with their mentors, and apply for schools like UK!

To learn more about MyCoalition and its services, visit www.coalitionforcollegeaccess.org. Ready to apply to UK? The early action deadline is Dec. 1. Visit www.uky.edu/admission/apply-uk to submit your application through Common, Coalition or the UK app.

UK is the University for Kentucky. At UK, we are educating more students, treating more patients with complex illnesses and conducting more research and service than at any time in our 150-year history.
