Fall 2020 Applications and Admission-based Scholarships


We will be accepting unofficial transcripts during this closure. Please work with your admissions counselor to submit all unofficial documents.


We will review applications without scores and are able to re-review a previous applicant with additional information, such as a personal statement. Our staff will also accept unofficial test scores during this closure. Please contact your admissions counselor for additional information or with any questions.

Transfer Courses

If you are transferring course work to UofL from Spring 2020, the University will accept P grades to meet all general education requirements, and to meet prerequisites. In most cases, P grades earned in other courses will also meet degree requirements, but we recommend checking during your advising appointment.

Summer 2020 Term

Important Notice for GI Bill Recipients

A new emergency bill has granted the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) the authority to continue GI Bill payments uninterrupted in the event of national emergencies (such as COVID-19).

The new law allows the VA to continue to pay benefits even if your program delivery method has changed from resident training to online training. You will also continue to receive the same monthly housing allowance payments that you received for resident training until January 1, 2021, or until UofL resumes normal operations.
