Residency Requirements

Out of State Residents: Consistent with the mission of the University of Louisville as a state university, residents of Kentucky are given preference for admission. Applications from nonresidents are accepted and those with significant academic, personal or family ties to Kentucky are given preference. Residency must be established prior to submitting your application. Each year, approximately 42 students in the total class of 162 matriculating students are considered non-residents. For more details on recently admitted students, view our Student Profile information.
