ULtra: University of Louisville Transfer
The University of Louisville offers services for students who aspire to earn their Bachelor’s degree from UofL but would like to start at Jefferson Community and Technical College (Jefferson) through our ULtra program. ULtra has an office on the Jefferson’s Downtown campus and supports students while at and through the transfer process.
Programs & Events
As a future Card, being knowledgeable about UofL is important! ULtra hosts events throughout the academic year to keep you informed about the university and to help you meet other students who plan to transfer.
Cost & Aid
Financing a college education is a difficult process for many students. Numerous resources and opportunities are available for finding aid such as the KCTCS Transfer Scholarship.
UofL has over 400 student organizations catering to a variety of interests. As an Ultra student you can get a UofL student ID card that will allow you to participate in these organizations. UofL has multiple campus activities and events throughout the year that ULtra students can take part in.
KCTCS Transfer Degree Pathways
When a student transfers to University of Louisville, the student’s official transcript will certify if the student is fully general education certified. If so, the student will not need to take any additional general education courses at UofL. The student is guaranteed that all the KCTCS courses indicated in the pathway will be accepted at UofL and that the courses will count toward completion of a particular major.
ULtra is a service for Jefferson College students planning on transfering to the University of Louisville. This program provides students with an opportunity to speak with an Advisor to ensure the coursework being taken are the right classes for your UofL intended major. As an ULtra student, you will receive a Cardinal Card (UofL student ID). With the Cardinal Card, you will have access to all of UofL’s educational resources like REACH, be able to ride the TARC for free, buy student discounted tickets to basketball and football games (all other sporting events will be free). Have access to the Student Recreation Center, and live in UofL affiliated housing!
Taking a Class at UofL via ULtra is a consortium of higher education institutions in the Louisville area that allows students to take classes at the other institutions. Both UofL and JCTC are members of the program. This allows JCTC students to take classes at UofL while still paying the cost of a JCTC class.As a ULtra student, you will have access to meet with ULtra advisors who will help you select your classes at UofL. Before each semester, ULtra has a registration period that allows students to come and register for classes, and we take care of the paperwork for you.
