 ORIGIN, PURPOSES, AND ACCREDITATION
The University of Kentucky, a state-supported institution, is
located at Lexington, an urban community of about 75,000 popula-
tion. The Board of Trustees includes the Governor, the Superin-
tendent of Public Instruction, and the Commissioner of Agriculture, A
ex officio, and twelve members appointed by the Governor, three ,
of whom are alumni of the University and three, members of the
State Board of Agriculture. The University is one of a number
of institutions known as land-grant colleges, which were established
‘ by the Morrill Act of 1862 and which have continued to receive
federal assistance under the provisions of this and subsequent
laws relating to the teaching of agriculture and the mechanic arts
and the provision of agricultural experiment stations and extension
services in agriculture and home economics.
. The University of Kentucky began as a part of Kentucky
University under a cooperative plan authorized by the legislature
in 1865. The purpose of this plan was to unite sectarian and pub-
lic education under one organization. This experiment was tried
for a number of years. In the meantime, the federal funds author-
ized under the Morrill Act were used to develop agriculture and
mechanic arts in Kentucky University. In 1878, when the people
_ of Kentucky decided to establish a state institution of higher learn-
ing, the College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts was separated
from Kentucky University and reestablished on land given by the
City of Lexington and the County of Fayette. Thirty years later
the legislature changed the name of the institution to the State K
University of Kentucky, and gave it additional financial support.
In 1916 the name was again changed, this time to the present title,
and additional maintenance was arranged by legislative act.
The major function of the University is that of instruction.
For the performance of this function it is organized into the College
of Arts and Sciences, the College of Agriculture and Home Eco- 1
nomics, the College of Engineering, the College of Law, the
College of Education, the College of Commerce, the College of
Pharmacy, the Graduate School, and the Department of University
. Extension.
_ In addition to giving instruction to its student body, the Uni-
versity contributes to the welfare of the state through research,
experimentation, and public service. While all departments make
important contributions along these lines, certain divisions and
bureaus have been established specifically for these purposes.
Included in this group are the Experiment Station and the Exten-
sion Division of the College of Agriculture and Home Economics,

  ADMISSION T0 THE UNIVERSITY
  Students are admitted to the University of Kentucky as fresh- .
°* men, as students with advanced standing from other institutions,
Q as graduate students, as special students, and as auditors. Admis-
‘ sion to certain colleges is governed by special regulations.
' »   Applications for admission to the University should be made
  to the Registrar on forms furnished by the Registrar’s Office.
`ZQ Certified copies of high school credentials and of work done in other
  institutions should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office in advance
  of the registration period. Failure to file credentials in time for
  checking before the registration period will delay the student in
  arranging his program. All admissions, including those to the
  professional schools and the Graduate School must be passed on
7 5 by the Registrar’s Office. Students who come to the University
’ / , E without having their admission approved, do so at their own risk. 2
  _   The University reserves the right to refuse consideration of appli- V
  cations not made before the beginning of the registration period. .
‘i The University classification tests must be taken by new under-
  graduate students before they can be registered for classes.
, Admission to the Freshman Class
Applicants who are graduates of accredited high schools will
. . · be admitted to the University on certificate, provided they have at

 GENERAL INFORMATION 15
least iifteen units of acceptable high school work. A unit repre-
sents the study of any subject for a school year of at least thirty-
two weeks, with five recitation periods a week, each of at least
forty-five minutes in length, or the equivalent thereof. Double
periods are required in shop, drawing, typewriting, and all other
courses which demand no out—of-class preparation. One unit is
the minimum credit accepted in any foreign language, and one-half
unit the minimum in any other subject.
While the University does not prescribe a pattern of work for
admission, it recommends that at least ten of the units presented -
be chosen from English, the social studies, mathematics, the for-
eign languages, and the laboratory sciences, and that within these
ten units the student offer at least three units in English, one and
one-half in algebra, and one in plane geometry. Should a student
lack these courses as prerequisites for any of his college work, he
will be required to take them in college without credit, thus de-
laying his graduation.
Applicants who have graduated from unaccredited high schools
and those not graduated from high school may be admitted as
freshmen if, in addition to presenting the fifteen acceptable units,
they successfully pass the University classification examinations.
Admission to the University does not necessarily qualify a
student for admission to a particular college. In every case the
student must meet the admission requirements of the college in
which he is to enroll.
I Admission to Advanced Standing
Kentucky Students. A resident of Kentucky who applies for
admission with advanced standing is expected to present evidence .
that he is in good standing in every respect in the institution last
attended. He should have maintained a standing of 1.0 or an aver-
age of C in all previous college work. The student whose standing
is below 1.0, however, may be admitted on probation if after taking
the University classification tests such an admission seems war-
ranted. In no case shall a student be admitted whose record is such
that he would have been dropped at the University of Kentucky.
The University does not disregard at any time or under any
conditions college or university records in order to admit appli-
i cants solely on the basis of their high school records. .
I A transfer student is allowed only as many advanced credits
l as he can present quality points. Otherwise, work done at a fully
accredited college or university is recognized credit for credit.
In order to be classified as fully accredited, a college must be
3 member of a regional accrediting association or it must be on
the approved list of the state university of the state in which it is
located. Advanced standing from an unaccredited college may be
obtained at the University only by special subject examinations.

l \ _   Out-of-State Students. A non-resident who applies for ad- _
~   mission with advanced standing must in all cases have maintained ` I
iv a standing of 1.0 in all previous college work. In other respects, . I
  the requirements and conditions of transfer are the same as for (
  Kentucky students. t
  Written applications for admission with advanced standing ~ c
  should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office on forms furnished by 2
`   that office. t

  Admission as a Special Student
  A graduate of another university or college may enter the Uni- -
  versity as a special student. Any other person may be admitted as a  
  special student provided he is fully prepared to do the work de- .
·   sired and provided he is at least twenty-one years of age.*  
l     Before a special student can become a candidate for a degree ;
' A ‘{_.j he must have his status changed to that of a regular student. This ,
ji may be done in one of two ways: ;
`   1. Satisfying the entrance requirements for admission to the I
p   freshman class. - 4
  2. Completing in residence sixty-seven credits with a standing A
'   of at least 1.5 in all work attempted.
  A special student is eligible to take any course for which he has 1
  satisfied the prerequisites except one numbered 200 or above. `
rl; Admission as an Auditor .
l
Q By payment of the required fees any person may be admitted `
{ to a class or classes as an auditor. A student regularly enrolled in
E any college must apply to the Dean of the College in which he is
A 1 registered in order to be an auditor. Other persons should apply
  to the Registrar’s Office for admission. No credit can be given for
  a class audited, nor is the student permitted an examination for
  credit. No instructor is authorized to admit an auditor to any of
  his classes except on presentation of an auditor’s card from the
  Registrar’s Office.
