You must provide an admission application and evidence of appropriate scholastic achievement through prior educational experience.
Please note that certain degree programs have separate, special admission requirements. Admission to the university does not mean automatic admission to all degree programs.
Please review the types of admission categories, find the one that best fits your circumstances, and follow the instructions for that category. This will help you answer item 19 on the Application for Undergraduate Admission.
To be admitted to the University as a freshman you must:
- Be a high school graduate, have a G.E.D., or have completed an approved home-school curriculum. If you are in your senior year, you may be admitted tentatively upon submission of a sixth-semester (through your junior year) high school transcript. After graduation, you must submit a final high school transcript certifying the actual date of graduation.
- Provide American College Test (A.C.T.) or Scholastic Achievement Test (S.A.T.) Scores.
- Have completed Kentucky's Pre-College Curriculum, or the equivalent thereof. This curriculum requires four specified units of English (English I, II, III, and IV), three units of mathematics (Algebra I and II and geometry), three units of social science, three units of science, two units of a foreign language, one-half unit of health, one-half unit of physical education, one unit of history and appreciation of visual or performing arts and five units of electives. If you have not completed the Pre-College Curriculum, you will be required to remediate deficiencies.
