Visiting students can easily apply on our Streamlined Non-Degree Application. This application is for

Non-Degree Seeking Students:

Students desiring to continue their education without seeking a degree. Non-degree status affords an opportunity for individuals to pursue lifelong learning without the structure of degree-seeking status and is consistent with the educational mission of UK.

Students Seeking Transfer Credits:

These students may be interested in taking a course while home for the break, with a preferred professor at UK, or one that is not currently offered at the institution where they are enrolled.

Applicants will be asked to self-certify that they have obtained a high school diploma, GED or meet the Kentucky Council on Post-Secondary Education college readiness indicators. Students wishing to change to degree-seeking status at the University of Kentucky after enrolling as a non-degree student must apply using the same application process as those who are degree seeking.
