Readmission applicants must submit the following:

  2. Non-refundable undergraduate application fee paid through the application portal.  Full-time UK employees applying to take classes and who submit a copy of their UK staff card are not required to pay the processing fee. 

  3. Official Transcript from each college or university attended since enrolled at UK (if applicable)

  4. Existing UK holds such as financial, parking, iPad, etc. must also be cleared before readmission decision can be determined 

NOTE: Students under suspension from UK are not eligible for readmission, regardless of their status at another institution, until they have been reinstated to the University. If the suspension is for academic reasons, reinstatement should be requested from the dean of the college in which they intend to enroll by the stated deadline. If the suspension is nonacademic, reinstatement should be requested from the appropriate University official. Reinstated students also must file an application for readmission in the Office of Undergraduate Admission by the stated deadline.
