Freshman BBN Orientation Information

Big Blue Nation Orientation is the first step in your transition to enrolling as a student at the University of Kentucky. At your BBN Orientation, students will meet other students, hear from campus offices and organizations, meet with advisors and register for classes.

Note that international students have an additional orientation process managed by the UK International Center. Learn more about that timeline here.

Fall 2024 Confirmation Deadline

UK is still currently accepting confirmation for most academic colleges, following the May 15 deadline. This may change as plans are made to prepare for the UK Class of 2028. The College of Nursing is no longer accepting new confirmations for fall 2024 freshmen but is allowing students to add their name to a confirmation waitlist or explore another major.
