Transfer Tuesdays (does not apply to Transfer Common Application)

If you apply to UK on a Transfer Tuesday for the upcoming academic year, we'll waive your $50 application fee! All you have to do is fully submit your application on any of the Transfer Tuesday dates below. Contact us with any questions!

Steps to Verify Your Fee Waiver

  1. Fill out your application to the University of Kentucky and click Submit.
  2. That's it! We'll take care of waiving your fee from there, as long as you fully submit your application on a Transfer Tuesday date.

Please note: You must submit your application to UK on a Transfer Tuesday for your application fee to be waived. Your fee may not automatically be reflected as waived in your application portal, but if you applied on a Transfer Tuesday date, your admission officer will take care of waiving your fee when they process your application.

Additionally, you must be applying to UK as a transfer student; if you are a freshman, readmitted student or non-degree applicant, this promotion will not apply to your application. Please contact with any questions about fee waivers for those application types.

Transfer Housing at UK

Living on campus is a great way to get immediately connected to the campus community and is increasingly the preferred choice of new and returning students. Students are encouraged to apply to housing early; you may apply to housing as soon as you've been admitted to UK. UK offers a transfer-centric Living Learning Program - Transfer Year Experience. The program is designed to support transfer students through their transition to the university and connect them with fellow students, faculty and staff for additional support.
