The University Scholars program offers students the opportunity and challenge of integrating their undergraduate and graduate or professional courses of study into a single, continuous program leading to both a baccalaureate and master’s degree. The student’s particular requirements will determine the amount of time needed to complete the program; however, the program can normally be completed in less time than that required in a conventional program.

Applicants for the University Scholars program must meet the following admissions requirements:

1. The applicant must have senior standing (completed at least 90 hours of course work) and have completed all UK Core requirements.

2. Students should apply at the end of their junior year.

3. The master’s program should be in the field of the undergraduate major.

4. Applicants must have an undergraduate grade-point average of 3.5 or above in their major field and 3.2 or above overall.
