Our admissions process is very simple. Check it out and apply today! UK’s Visitor Center will take you on a complete guided tour, set up a time to meet with the College of Education, and offer any questions you might have. Their website is very informative and will give you university and community-wide information. You can find your area recruiter and call them up, get further informed on financial aid and scholarships, and find multiple other resources.
The College of Education offers scholarships for entering freshmen, enrolled undergraduates, and graduate students. Needs-based scholarships require the FAFSA to be complete prior to awarding. Further scholarships exist for the COST overseas student teaching program.
With 18 student organizations, there is sure to be a place for you! The emphasis on the college’s student organizations is primarily on professional educator development. Typically, undergraduates join the organization(s) that are affiliated with their major. Graduate students join the university’s chapter or the national chapter of the organization associated with their specific field of study.
Living and Learning Communities:
Living and learning communities at UK recognize that students learn both inside and outside of the classroom. The communities offer students an opportunity to live and learn together in an integrated academic residential environment. The College of Education is continuing to work diligently to build and maintain this robust community structure for student success.
Kinesiology & Health Promotion Community will be in Ingels Hall
Academic and Student Services:
The Office of Academic and Student Services oversees all student advising, whether in a teacher certified program or not. All certification questions and inquires also go through this office as well.
Student Teaching Abroad:
When you get to the student teaching aspect of your major, one option is complete your requirements overseas. The COST (Consortium for Overseas Student Teaching) program provides a unique, once-in-a-lifetime chance. With countless options and scholarship opportunities, the COST program may be more of a fit than you might think.
