LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 7, 2022) — This semester, all University of Kentucky freshmen (first-year students), sophomores and juniors will complete a short survey about student athletics interests before registering for classes through myUK.

Now in its fifth year, the Athletics Interests and Abilities Survey is designed to help UK Athletics, UK Club Sports and UK Intramurals determine whether UK is effectively meeting the athletic interests and abilities of its students. Students who are eligible to take the survey will find the URL on the Student Services tab in the myUK portal and will be required to complete it prior to registration.

The Athletics Interests and Abilities Survey opened to eligible students today, Monday, Feb. 7, and registration holds will be lifted automatically after submission of a survey response. Early completion of the survey (prior to students’ registration window opening date) is encouraged.

For questions about the survey or registration holds, please contact

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
