Merit Weekend 2020


At the University of Kentucky, your safety and well-being is our top priority. The coronavirus (COVID-19) is already proving to be an unprecedented disruption to our community, Commonwealth and world.

In an abundance of care and caution, the Division of Enrollment Management, Office of Orientation and Outreach and our campus partners have elected to move Merit Weekend from an in-person, onsite offering to an online format.

With our online orientation, you will receive the benefits and information you would have received during an in-person orientation including:  

  • Academic advising
  • Family/guest sessions
  • Small-group interactive exercises
  • University-support resources

The online Merit Weekend experience will be delivered via online platforms such as Canvas and Zoom on the Friday of your scheduled Merit Weekend.  We will make additional opportunities prior to the end of the school year for you to visit campus, take tours and more.

Please monitor your UK email as a detailed schedule of events will be sent out soon, along with material to review and activities to complete ahead of time.  If you have any questions about Merit Weekend, please email orientation@uky.edu.
