Graduation Requirements

To graduate from the College of Education, a student must: 1) complete all specific program requirements as listed in this Bulletin; and 2) meet all requirements of the College of Education admission/retention/completion policy. Because most students are pursuing both a UK degree and a state educator license (certificate), it is extremely important that advisors are consulted frequently to be sure that the best selection of courses is made to meet both requirements.
