LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 2, 2022) — The semester is coming to a close, and summer break is almost here!

Get a jump start on your summer with this helpful checklist:

  • Register for classes. Both Summer and Fall 2022 University of Kentucky classes are available. Register now soon to ensure you get the classes you need or want.

  • A number of student resources housed in the Office for Student Success will remain available over the summer including:
    • The Stuckert Career Center: You can sign up for an in-person or virtual appointment, just book them via Handshake.
    • The Counseling Center: Students enrolled in six or more credit hours for Fall 2022 have access to the Counseling Center services over the summer.

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.
