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.
