Welcome EPE Students!


When you applied to UK, you were given a UK email address.  This address is associated with your registration and student records and will be used for all formal communication.  The department also has a student email group (a "Google group" to which we link our department blog).  If you want department notifications, you can sign up for this list.  OR you can subscribe to the department blog, KUDOS, through an online reader.

Policies & Procedures

Student-related department policies are based on the Graduate Bulletin published by the University of Kentucky Graduate School.  Details and department specific policies are found below:


Enrollment & Registration to stay in good standing

Program of Study & Advising...making progress to degree

Master's Student Details...for our MS students

Doctoral Student Details...for our EdD and PhD students

Progress toward Degree... per department policies

Students seeking funding or assistantships should be sure to notify our department administrative assistant, Amberly Warnke.  You are responsible for doing your own funding research by checking: a) KUDOS, the department blog where all department assistantships are posted; b) the Graduate School website; and c) the College of Education website.  Fellowship and TA applications are typically due in February for the following school year.  Assistantships and fellowships that begin in January are rare, but do occasionally happen.

Registration & Scheduling Your Classes

When admitted to the department, you were assigned a temporary advisor to answer your initial advising questions.  Soon you'll identify your major professor who will guide you in completing your degree.  Email is typically the best way to contact your advisor.

Each semester you will register for classes online when your registration "window" opens.  If you miss your window or have to make changes there will be an "add/drop window" just prior to and during the first week of classes.  Consult the Registrar's Office website for further information.  Visit the EPE Courses page for more information on EPE course offerings.
