LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 18, 2023) — Priority registration runs Oct. 30-Nov. 21, and this fall, for the first time, most University of Kentucky students’ registration window will be determined by their degree percentage rate. 

To find when your priority registration date and time window opens, follow these steps:

  • Login to myUK
  • Navigate to myUK GPS under the Student Services tab
  • Select the term "Spring 2024" in the top right corner
  • Your Priority Registration window is located under "Can I register for classes?"

Graduate and professional students, students in the Lewis Honors College, students with disabilities and other eligible students will have earlier registration windows. Students and advisors will be notified of these windows in advance — so be sure to check myUK and your email, and work with your advisor now to be prepared.

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
