We know you have some questions, and we're here to help.
Students looking to register for orientation can find instructions on our Registration page.
If you have any questions that are not answered below, let us know.
Registering for an orientation is the official way to confirm your attendance at UK!
You can see more about other steps – including information on housing, financial aid and scholarships – on our admitted students page.
Orientations are open for registration on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure the best advising experience possible, we work with colleges to set capacities for individual dates.
If you are already registered for BBN Orientation, you can select a new date using the instructions above. You'll only see available dates.
You’ll need to use Google Chrome or Firefox to complete this process. Microsoft Edge, Safari and Internet Explorer do not work with the myUK portal.
There will be no additional charges for switching your BBN Orientation.
A final high school transcript showing GPA and date of graduation is still required even if your school used a pass/fail grading system for the final semester. Please have your high school counselor send directly to:
Office of Undergraduate Admission
100 W.D. Funkhouser Bldg.
Lexington, KY 40506-0054.
Test modifications and changes are not affecting our current credit awarding process for incoming students. Please have the testing agency send your official score report to the University of Kentucky.
Freshman students joining us in the fall semester pay a $125 orientation fee and $125 enrollment prepayment when registering for orientation. Additionally, students must pay a $30 guest fee per guest if bringing a guest(s) to BBN Orientation. The enrollment prepayment secures your place in the class and will appear as a credit on a student’s fall tuition bill.
We encourage you to stay on campus during your time at BBN Orientation. We will have a residence hall open that allows students and their guests to stay in a two bedroom suite style room. For more information, click here.
If you are looking to find a hotel room near campus, we recommend exploring options through VisitLex.
Yes, we are happy to accommodate parents or guests to attend an in-person BBN Orientation. The guest fee is $30 per guest and can be added when you register for your in-person orientation.
