University-wide Navigation

At the University of Kentucky, we pride ourselves on putting our students first in everything we do. We recognize that your Wildcat had an unusual start to their UK journey in the middle of a global pandemic, and we are continually seeking ways to provide them holistic, comprehensive support both inside and outside the classroom. Knowing that it has been a while since their orientation experience, they may have emerging needs in their second year and are uncertain about the resources available to assist them.


Majors, Careers, and Staying on Track to Graduate

Whether your second-year student is exploring majors, reconsidering a previous major choice, or making progress on their degree requirements, UK has resources to support our Wildcats and get them across the stage at Commencement!
