Trustees includes the Governor, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and
the Commissioner of Agriculture, cx olficio, and twelve members appointed by
the Governor, three of whom are alumni of the University. 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 provisions of this and subsequent laws relating to
the teaching of agriculture and the mechanic arts and the provision of agri-
cultural 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 public education under one organization. This
experiment was tried for a number of years. In the meantime, the federal funds
authorized 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 learning, the College of Agriculture and
Mechanic Arts was separated from Kentucky University and reestablishcd 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 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 per-
formance of this function it is organized into the College of Arts and Sciences,
the College of Agriculture and Home Economics, the College of Engineering,
the College of Law, the College of Education, the College of Commerce, the
College of Pharmacy, the College of Adult and Extension Education, and the
Graduate School. The Board of Trustees, on june 1, 1954 established a Col-
lege of Medicine, to be opened when the General Assembly provides funds for
its implementation.
In addition to giving instruction to its student body, the University con-
tributes to the welfare of the state through research, cxpcrimcntation, and pub-
lic service. \Vhile all departments make important contributions along these
lines, certain divisions and bureaus have bccn established specifically for these
purposes. Included in this group are the Experiment Station and the Extension
Division of the College of Agriculture and llomc Economics, the Bureau of
Business Research, thc Bureau of Covcrnmcnt licscarch, the Bureau of School
Service, the Bureau of Source Materials in llighcr Education, the University
l’lacemcnt Bureau, the liadio Studios, the Burcau of Corrt~spondencc and llomc
Study, thc Bureau of Club and Community Service, the Bureau of Audio Visual
Materials, the Department of Public Relations, the Engineering Experiment
Station, the Child Guidance Service, the Industrial Psychological Service, the
Social licscarch Consultation Service, and the Bureau of Community Service.
The University of Kentucky is a member of the Southern Association of

ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY
. Students are admitted to the University of Kentucky as freshmen, as stu-
dents with advanced standingfrom other institutions, as graduate students, as
I special students, and as auditors. Admission to certain colleges is governed by
special regulations.
` Applications for admission to the University should be made to the Uni-
versity Registrar on forms furnished by the Registrar’s Oilice. 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 Hle 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 by the Regis-
trar’s Ofhce. Students who come to the University without having had their
admission approved, do so at their own risk. The University reserves the right
to refuse consideration of applications not made before the beginning of the
registration period. The University classification tests must be taken by new
undergraduate students before they can be registered for classes.
Admission to the Freshman Cluss
Applicants who are graduates of accredited high schools will be admitted
to the University on ccrtiheatc, provided they have at least fifteen units of ac-
ceptable high school work. A unit represents 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.
\Vhile 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 foreign 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 thcm'in college without credit, thus delaying his graduation.
Applicants who have graduated from unaceredited 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 docs not necessarily qualify a student for ad-
mission to a particular college. In every case the student must meet the ad-
mission requirements of the college in which he is to enroll.

 GENERAL INFORMATION 17
Admission ta 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 2.0 or an average of C in all previous college work.
The student whose standing is below 2.0, however, may be admitted on pro-
bation if after taking the University classification tests such an admission seems
warranted. 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 applicants solely on the basis of
their high school records.
A transfer student is allowed not more than half as many advanced credits
as he can present quality points. Otherwise, work done at a fully accredited
college or university is recognized credit for credit. Credit earned in an ae-
credited junior college is limited to a maximum of 32 credits per year.
In order to be classified as fully accredited, a college must be a 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.
Out—of-State Students. A non-resident who applies for admission with
advanced standing must in all cases have maintained a standing of 2.0 (C aver-
age) in all previous college work. In other respects, the requirements and con-
ditions of transfer are the same as for Kentucky students.
\Vritten applications for admission with advanced standing should be
submitted to the Registrars Office on forms furnished by that office.
Admission as a Special Student
A graduate of another university or college may enter the University as
a special student. Any other person may be admitted as a special student pro-
vided he is fully prepared to do the work desired and provided he is at least
twenty-one years of age.
Before a special student can become a candidate for a degree he must
have his status changed to that of a regular student. This may be done in one
of two ways;
1. Satisfying the entrance requirements for admission to the freshman class.
2. Completing in residence sixty-seven credits with a standing of at least
2.5 in all work attempted.
A special student is eligible to take any course for which he has satisfied
the prerequisites except one numbered 200 or above.
Admission as an Auditor
By payment of the required fees any person may be admitted to a class or
classes as an auditor. A student regularly enrolled in any college must apply
to the Dean of the College in which he is 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
