If you have taken a course at UK or elsewhere that is not a designated UK Core you may petition the General Education Exceptions Committee to grant an exception to allow the course to satisfy a UK Core requirement.
If the course in question is transfer work, it cannot be examined for an exception until it has been evaluated by the Transfer Center to determine how it will be accepted for credit on your unofficial transcript. Please consult with this office in Room 11, Funkhouser Bldg. to address transfer equivalency issues.
To submit a UK Core request, be sure to have an electronic copy of the course syllabus and/or description ready to post. If you are unable to provide an electronic copy, you may bring a hardcopy to our office in 230 McVey Hall. Be sure to also describe the nature of your request. If you are asking for consideration beyond a specific course, be sure to describe that in detail as well.
Once submitted, the request will be considered by the committee. The decision of the committee will be shared with the student and the student’s college. After notification from the committee, any changes will be reflected in 7-10 days in APEX Degree Planner.
