A note from Mrs. Wood in Guidance:
Seniors,
 
Below is information for University of Kentucky.  Please read and be mindful of several upcoming sessions and information concerning admissions and scholarship applications.  Also, please see the attached flyer for additional information concerning scholarships.

 Scholarships
We have updated our scholarships this year and have released more details about exact offers to help students plan financially. Scholarship sheets are attached.
GSE - Governor School for Entrepreneurs
Kentucky counselors should note that students who complete the GSE program will now be eligible for the same scholarship opportunities as GSA and GSP students.
These awards begin Fall 2019 with the summer 2018 GSE graduates. Students that attended GSE in previous years are not eligible.
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.
Upcoming Deadlines
February 15: regular decision admission (no consideration for academic/competitive scholarships or Lewis Honors College), William C. Parker Diversity Scholarship  (February 15th is application deadline however early application is encouraged)
Viewbook
An electronic copy of our viewbook can be found here. We are also always happy to mail you viewbooks if you would like some materials to keep in your office!
Students can create a customized viewbook here.
Campus Updates and Reminders
Our Visitor Center has moved over to our biggest and best new building, the Gatton Student Center.
