GROWL stands for Gathering for Registration, Orientation, Welcome and Leadership.
During GROWL sessions you will meet with an advisor one-on-one, have your photo taken for your UPIKE ID, talk with a financial services representative and finalize your housing and meal plan. You will also take a bus tour of Pikeville and spend time with other new UPIKE Bears while making friends and having fun!
We encourage your family to attend, as well.
In order to schedule an appointment for GROWL, you must be accepted to the University of Pikeville. The University must have your application, ACT/SAT scores and highschool/GED transcripts on file before you can register for GROWL.
If you are a high school student and have taken college courses while in high school, we must have received these transcripts, as well, in order for your acceptance to be complete.
If you are a transfer student, we must have received transcripts from all prior institutions you have attended.
If you have questions pertaining to your admissions status, please call 606-218-5251 for further information.
If you are a current student and would like to become a Bear Leader for GROWL, please fill out the Bear Leader Application and turn it into the Admission's office. The deadline for applications is February 24 at 5 p.m.
