The University of Kentucky is home to a powerful community. Here, you belong. Because this is a community built on compassion and respect for all people. And we’re united in a common cause: to create stronger communities across our Commonwealth and beyond and to do the transformative work that makes them thrive. This is what’s possible for you and we’re excited to see where your journey takes you.
Congratulations and Go Cats!
Confirm your enrollment by paying your orientation fee and enrollment deposit, then sign up for your Big Blue Nation Orientation. (Transfer students are assessed the orientation fee after participating in BBN Orientation; there is no enrollment prepayment for transfer students.)
If you’ve already registered for orientation, you can find your orientation date in myUK > Student Services > Admissions > BBN Orientation Registration. Expect BBN Orientation information in your mailbox 3-4 weeks before your date!
On May 8, the University of Kentucky transitioned to a confirmation waitlist for summer and fall 2023 freshman students who had not yet confirmed their plans by registering for BBN Orientation. Learn more at admission.uky.edu/confirmwaitlist23.
DO THIS FIRST: Activate your linkblue account
Every student needs a linkblue account to complete the confirmation process. Make sure you have your acceptance letter on hand to activate your account; you will need the username and temporary password provided. The linkblue wizard will also guide you through setting up your UKY email address and two-factor authentication.
View additional steps and resources in the Acceptance Package
After you’ve activated your linkblue account, you will set up your UKY email address. Check your email regularly for updates and important information on financial aid, scholarships, admissions and even your academic advisor!
