Priority Registration Tips and Tricks

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 28, 2022) — Priority Registration for Summer and Fall 2022 classes starts on March 28 and goes through April 19. Now is the time to make sure you are ready for when your registration window opens so that you can pick the classes you want on the days and times that best fit your needs.

Here are top tips for Priority Registration:

  • Some classes have limited sections or available seats, so make sure you’re ready to register as soon as your window opens.You are more likely to get the classes you want and need. Check when your registration window opens on myUK and set a reminder on your phone.

  • Scheduling your classes during Priority Registration allows you time to make room for other things in your daily schedule, like campus involvement, research and internships.

  • Build your schedule around your own preferences. If you’re a morning person, find those early sections. And don’t forget to give yourself a break so that you can study and eat.

  • Use the registration tools available in myUK. Plan out your courses so that you are ready to register when the window opens. Be sure to use the pre-register check to make sure you’re all set.

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.
