May 1 Is Important Deadline for Admitted UK Freshmen

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April  30, 2014) — May 1 is an important date for incoming freshmen who have been admitted to the University of Kentucky for the Fall 2014 semester.

Thursday, May 1, is the deadline for incoming freshmen to confirm their summer advising conferences. During these conferences, which begin June 23, faculty and staff work with new students to help them register for classes and provide an introduction to campus life at UK.

The advising conference confirmation is also the official way students notify UK they will attend beginning in the fall.  Students must set up their Link Blue account and log into myUK to complete the confirmation process.  Instructions for this process can be found here.

Incoming freshmen are also strongly encouraged to apply for housing by May 1.  In order for incoming freshmen to be reasonably sure that housing will be available for them in the fall, it is important for them to apply before April 30.
