FAI - Frequently Asked Questions


Where are classes held?

The School of Art and Visual Studies Building, the Metal Arts Facility near the SA/VS building, or sometimes off campus.

Where do I park?

Parking is always a challenge at UK. If visiting on a weekend or evening, most lots are available without restriction, but be sure to carefully read the signs at the entrance to each lot. During regular business hours, most parking is restricted. Parking regulations are strictly enforced. Metered parking and pay parking are available at certain lots and parking structures around campus. The closest pay lots to the School of Art & Visual Studies Building is Parking Structure #5 on South Limestone next to Kennedy's Bookstore. We have a limited number of parking permits for Employee ("E") lots that we are offering for $3.50. Each permit is good for one 24-hour period. You can also purchase these permits at the UK Parking Offices located at 721 Press Avenue of Virginia Avenue.

Do UK Employees Receive Credit or a Discount?

Currently we are unable to offer an employee discount or academic credit for our Fine Arts Institute classes. 

What is the Fine Arts Institute refund policy if I need to cancel my class?

Cancellation Policy: The Fine Arts Institute strives to provide high-quality instruction that meets the students’ expectations in every way. 

Classes: In the event that the class you signed up for is not what you expected, we offer a risk-free cancellation policy. If you contact us after the first class session and would like to drop the class, we will refund 100% of the class fee. Starting with the 2nd class, no refunds will be offered.

Workshops: 100% refund will be offered if we are contacted by noon on the Friday before a workshop.

Our instructors receive the greater part of the class fee as their salaries, so this policy was adopted in fairness to them. Please contact us (859-257-8151 or carey.gough@uky.edu) if you have any questions.
