Only those students with 60 credit hours and a minimum 2.5 gpa are eligible for Advanced Standing. If you need to be admitted to Advanced Standing then please use this form. Then schedule an appointment (see below) with Antoinette Davis (MICmath@coe.uky.edu) and bring your transcript along with an electronic copy of the Advanced Standing form and an electronic copy of your curriculum contract. You may email your curriculum contract and Advanced Standing form to her prior to your appointment if you wish. Once this is complete then she will advise you for the remainder of your undergraduate studies.
Antoinette will be taking appointments via the web. You must meet with her in order to get your hold lifted! Click here to find the current schedule of times. You may need to hit the refresh button on your browser to ensure that you have the most updated schedule. Send her an email stating the time you would like to have for your session. She will update the schedule as quickly as possible and confirm your time with you. SHE WILL NOT MAKE APPOINTMENTS THE DAY OF. IF YOU HAVE NOT MADE AND CONFIRMED YOUR APPOINTMENT BEFORE 10PM THE DAY BEFORE, THEN CONSIDER IT NOT AVAILABLE. Remember you cannot schedule your courses until your hold is lifted. When you come to your session you need to bring your latest unofficial transcript and a completed curriculum contract in electronic form (these can be emailed to her if you don't have a flash drive or disk). Please make sure this contract is up to date and complete for your entire tenure at UK (every class should be accounted for). This will make your session go much quicker. If you do not have any questions and have met with her previously you may not need to have an advising session face-to-face; although if you feel more comfortable you are welcome to meet with her. You can find schedule books online from the registrar or by logging on to your myUK account.
Follow this link to view the Curriculum Contract for Secondary Mathematics Education. This is the new curriculum contract for secondary mathematics education. You must use this curriculum contract if you are entering the program beginning in the Fall 2007. All those prior to Fall 2007 should already have a curriculum contract on file and do not need to worry about filling out a new one. Just update your old one.
This link will take you to the registrar’s page so that you can perform your degree audit. However, at this time you must get an official degree audit prior to graduation from the undergraduate advisors in TEB 166.
Dr. Margaret Mohr-Schroeder is in charge of the Secondary Mathematics Education Program. Please feel free to stop by and talk with her or email her. However, if you have questions pertaining to advising, please contact Ms. Antoinette Davis first.
To start the graduation process, file a degree application
and do a degree audit in TEB 166. You must complete all degree
requirements and must have a 2.50 accumulative GPA and a 2.50 GPA in each major,
minor, and support areas. It is very important that you file a degree
application. This is separate from applying to walk at graduation! Applying for
a degree is your responsibility; not your advisors! Degree applications are
typically due within the first month of school starting. Please refer to the
University Calendar for specific dates.

Scholarship offered by KHEAA. It is a great source of financial aid for
all pre-service teachers.
To receive emails from the advisor and other faculty members you need to sign up for the pertinent listserv's. Visit http://www.uky.edu/Education/TEP/coelist.html to sign up for UGMATHEDU, UGEDCSEC, and MATHEDU. This is a must for anyone in the program or interested in the program.

Schedule books will no longer be printed. You can find schedules online through the registrar or by logging onto myUK.
There are several scholarships available to undergraduates through the College of Education. Use this link to access information regarding your eligibility.
If you will have completed your coursework and still have hours available in the spring of your senior year you may enroll in the 6/6 program. You enroll in six undergraduate hours and six graduate hours. This allows you to take care of two elective courses for the MIC program. Completing two elective courses for the MIC program DOES NOT guarantee you admission. You must be accepted to the graduate school (this includes taking the GRE!) and pay graduate tuition for your coursework. You must also submit the "Graduating Seniors as Part-Time Graduate Students" form. This form requires the signature of the DGS of your department. If you are in the Secondary Math Ed program, this is Dr. Mary Shake (305 DH). If you are in mathematics, this is Dr. Serge Ochanine (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you are planning on the 6/6 Program in the spring, the deadline for the graduate school application is Nov. 15; for the Fall it is April 15.
From the Graduate Student Bulletin:
Seniors at the University of Kentucky lacking no more than 6 credit hours for graduation and having an undergraduate average of at least 2.75 on all work attempted may register in the Graduate School in conditional status with the consent of the undergraduate college dean, the appropriate Director of Graduate Studies, and the Dean of the Graduate School. The total load of such students may not exceed 12 credit hours. Graduate credit will be allowed for each credit hour of graduate work beyond the six or fewer credit hours needed to complete undergraduate requirements. Requirements for the undergraduate degree must be completed during the semester in which the student is allowed to register of part time graduate work. Students applying for admission to the Graduate School under these conditions must fill out a petition form listing the course or courses to be taken to complete the undergraduate requirements. Petition forms are available athttp://www.gradschool.uky.edu/gsforms.html under "Admission to Special Programs".

The Noyce Loan/Scholarship Program can provide up to two (2) years of academic loan/scholarship support for seniors and fifth-year STEM students (MIC Students) who are preparing to teach science and/or mathematics. Successful applicants will receive a loan for academic work leading toward science and mathematics teacher preparation and certification. After a period of teaching service in an approved high-need school (2 years to each year the scholarship is received), the loan (principal and interest) is converted to a scholarship.
