Step 2: Submitting your deposit.

All applications must be accompanied with a deposit of $100. Because of the high demand for spots in our programs we want you to make sure you are committed when you apply. Therefore deposits are only refundable if you are denied admission. Your admission is not confirmed until we receive your $100 deposit. All payments (including deposits) may now be submitted using the University of Kentucky secure payment system. Click here to access our online secure payment system.

You may still submit payments via regular mail and include it along with your application. Please make all checks payable to “Kentucky Debate”. Mailing address is:

Step 3: Confirmation.

You will receive an email confirmation within 2-3 days of submitting your application and deposit. Shortly after that you will receive your orientation materials for your program and some forms you’ll need to return to us at registration. You will receive email confirmation of any deposits or payments immediately after they are submitted if you are using our online payment system.
