UK is a member institution of RaiseMe to help students identify scholarship opportunities and stay on track for future college funding during high school.
Application Information
Our letter of recommendation is still optional.
For most students, we encourage them not to submit a letter of recommendation. A recommendation letter would be helpful if the student has a learning disability, difficult family history, or other situation that would need explanation on their behalf to shed some light on the academic credentials.
We are in the process of onboarding with the Coalition Application, but for now we encourage students to use the Common Application or the UK application at applyuk.com.
