Congratulations on your acceptance to the UK College of Pharmacy and welcome to the Kentucky pharmacy family! Here is some helpful information . . .
Important Dates for the Class of 2021:
A non-refundable tuition deposit is required to reserve your admission seat for Fall 2018. For residency information, visit the UK University Registrar website, call (859) 257-3256 or email email@example.com. If already a UK student, your current residency status as an undergraduate will also apply to pharmacy school. Recently accepted EARLY DECISION candidates submit the full deposit upon acceptance ($500 for KY residents/$1,000 for Out-of-State residents). Recently accepted REGULAR DECISION candidates submit $200 upon initial acceptance by the deadline stated in your acceptance offer and the balance of the seat deposit on March 1 ($200 first deposit prior to March 1; remaining $300 for KY residents/$800 for Out-of-State residents due March 1).
NOTE: If the credit card holder's name is different than the student's name, you must include the student's name for correct processing.
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 http://www.uky.edu/financialaid/find-your-counselor.
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.
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.
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.
