Space in our events, classes, and programs may be limited. While individual cancellations may happen and seats reopen, we cannot guarantee anyone's place in a class or workshop. The College of Fine Arts at UK reserves the right to cancel a class or program when circumstances warrant, including insufficient enrollment. The College of Fine Arts reserves the right to close purchase forms for events if we reach capacity prior to event date. In the event of a cancellation, participants will be notified, and in most cases a refund will be issued. Please see the Refund Policy section below for any program specific exceptions.


Because your privacy is important to us, the University of Kentucky College of Fine Arts Registration website operates under these principles:

  • The online payment system (Site) is maintained by UK College of Fine Arts, 202 Fine Arts Building, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY 40506-0022.
  • We explicitly ask when we need information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information"). For example, to register for programs or events, you will be asked to provide your name, e-mail address, and other information depending on the event and requirements of that specific event. We use this information to generate e-mail messages to inform you of successful registrations and other information related to that event.
  • Some transactions such as memberships may automatically subscribe you to a mailing list, physical and/or digital, using the Personal Information you provided upon sign-up. These communications are optional. If you wish to no longer receive communications after providing your personal information you may contact the program by phone or email to request removal from communications lists. Email communications have an unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email that will automatically remove you from email communications without having to directly contact any College of Fine Arts personnel. After an opt-out request has been received and processed, we may still contact you concerning any changes to or problems with your purchase.
  • If at any time you believe this Site has not adhered to these principles, please notify us by email and we will use all reasonable efforts to promptly determine and correct the problem. If you have questions about this policy, please email us.
