 ORIGIN, PURPOSES, AND ACCREDITATION
The University of Kentucky, a state-supported institution, is located at
Lexington, an urban community of over 100,000 population. The Board of
Trustees includes the Governor, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and
the Commissioner of Agriculture, ex ofHcio, 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 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 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 ftmction 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 Phannacy, the Graduate School, and the Department of University
Extension.
In addition to giving instruction to its student body, the University con-
tributes to the welfare of the state through research, experimentation, and pub-
lic 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 Extension
Division of the College of Agriculture and Home Economics, the Bureau of ‘
Business Research, the Bureau of Govemment Research, the Bureau of School
Service, the Bureau of Source Materials in Higher Education, the University
Placement Bureau, the Radio Studios, the Department of University Extension,
the Department of Public Relations, the Engineering Experiment Station, the
Child Guidance Service, the Family Life Institute, the Industrial Psychological
Service, the Social Research Consultation Service, and the Bureau of Com-
munity Service.
The University of Kentucky is a member of the Southern Association of
Colleges and Secondary Schools and the Kentucky Association of Colleges and
Secondary Schools. It is accredited in its respective colleges or departments by
the Association of American Law Schools, the American Association of Collegi-
ate Schools of Business, the American Association of Schools and Departments
of Journalism, the American Library Association, the Association of Research

 I ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY E
  Students are admitted to the University of Kentucky as freshmen, as stud-
  ents with advanced standing from other institutions, as graduate students, as is
  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- DI
  versity Registrar on forms furnished by the Registrars Office. Certified copies ur
  of high school credentials and of work done in other institutions should be C0
gi submitted to the Registrafs Office in advance of the registration period. Failure {
  to file credentials in time for checking before the registration period will delay Ob
  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- su
  trar’s Oiiice. Students who come to the University without having had their
  admission approved, do so at their own risk. The University reserves the right M
,; to refuse consideration of applications not made before the beginning of the 1
  registration period. The University classification tests must be taken by new E
  undergraduate students before they can be registered for classes.
  sr
L Admission to the Freshman Class
Applicants who are graduates of accredited high schools will be admitted
r to the University on certificate, provided they have at least fifteen units of ac- E
  ceptable high school work. A unit represents the study of any subject for a V,
  school year of at least thirty-two weeks, with five recitation periods a week, In
  each of at least forty-ve minutes in length, or the equivalent thereof. Double
  periods are required in shop, drawing, typewriting, and all other courses which h
  demand no out-of-class preparation. One unit is the minimum credit accepted O,
  in any foreign language, and one-half unit the minimum in any other subject.
Q VVhile 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
i sciences, and that within these ten units the student offer at least three units ti
  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 b€
  required to take them in college without credit, thus delaying his graduation.
*3 Applicants who have graduated from unaccredited high schools and th0$€
  not graduated from high school may be admitted as freshmen if, in addition 0
{ to presenting the fifteen acceptable units, they successfully pass the UniversiT>’ f`
, .1 classification examinations. (
  Admission to the University does not necessarily qualify a student for ad- C
E 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. 6
