Financial Aid Information

Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online by the deadline. Please be aware that if you have not used the online service before, you must request a PIN number and that can take several days. Approximately 85% of UK College of Pharmacy students will fund their tuition through federal and/or private loans. Additional information will be provided on this topic at Early Orientation. Students usually take enough loans to cover tuition/books/living expenses/room/board/etc. Since including income of parents is typically not required for professional students, most domestic students are eligible for substantial loans. Note: When completing the FAFSA, use the University of Kentucky federal school code: 001989.

Every student at UK has a financial aid counselor who can assist with questions and guidance. Find assistance at

CPR Training

The College of Pharmacy requires that all pharmacy students be certified in an approved CPR training program by September 30 of their first professional year. Information will be provided on this topic at Early Orientation. We encourage students to wait to receive this information as there are specific requirements to obtain certification for UKCOP purposes.

Immunization Compliance Forms

Class of 2021 University Health Service (UHS) Immunization Compliance Forms are due into the Academic & Student Affairs Office by the first day of Spring 2018 semester classes. Information will be provided on this topic at Early Orientation.

Intern Card

Students may apply for their intern card through the KY Board of Pharmacy once they have received a conditional acceptance email. This is important if students want to begin obtaining intern hours in the summer before classes start. We encourage students who are working in a pharmacy to begin collecting their intern hours as soon as they become conditionally accepted. Additional information will be provided on this topic at Early Orientation. More information can be found on the KY Board of Pharmacy website.

Summer Prerequisite Course Approval

All students taking Pre-Pharmacy prerequisite coursework over the summer must receive prior course approval by submitting a Summer Course Approval form to Sharon Gonzales by May 12, 2017. Any questions regarding this may be directed to Sharon at
