Documentation for all reimbursable expenses must be submitted within one week of the end of conference and must include the conference program, schedule, or agenda. Reimbursable expenses include conference registration, poster printing, travel (flight, rental car, gas), and housing. Meals are not reimbursable.

Note that this application is for conference-related reimbursement only. Requests for excused absences related to the conference must be made through the Excused Absences Application. Student Areas Report Safe, clean, and well-maintained student lounges, study rooms, and call rooms are important to UK College of Medicine. Please report any observations of safety, cleanliness or maintenance issues in student areas. The report will go directly to our Director of Student Services, who will ensure that student issues are resolved in a timely manner. Curriculum Issues This portal provides a mechanism for direct student input regarding curriculum issues. It should not be utilized as a replacement for course/clerkship evaluations. Instead, this site is appropriate for providing suggestions/comments on curriculum topics that are not the purview of a specific course/clerkship and on issues with longitudinal courses (concerns that need to be addressed prior to the end of the course, such as ICM/ACM/ECM). This portal should not be used to report mistreatment or professionalism issues. Mistreatment and professionalism issues can be reported via separate portals and on course/clerkship evaluations. Excused Absences Application (Login Required) As a professional school, the UK College of Medicine attendance and active participation are required in all components of the curriculum. If it is necessary for you to be absent from a required MD program activity, you must submit a request in accordance with the UK College of Medicine absence policy specific to your phase of the curriculum. All policies can be found on the Student Resources SharePoint linked from the Student Portal.

Financial Aid Budget Appeal The Office of Financial Aid within the College of Medicine can offer you financial aid to cover your basic cost of attendance (COA) and living expenses during the academic year. This COA, or budget, is comprised of standard educational expenses incurred by medical students (e.g. tuition and fees, housing/living expenses, books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses). We use average amounts for all non-tuition and fees budget items and strongly encourage you to plan and budget your expenses and aid so that you stay within the COA. We understand that in certain situations the COA budget does not accurately reflect the costs actually incurred during the academic year and in such cases, you may appeal for a budget increase for documented expenses above those allocated in the COA.
