Online CIS 112 Summer Course

Here’s a great opportunity to reach out to exceptional freshmen students about the online CIS 112 class we’re offering during Summer Session II (June 7-August 2). Have them become part of the Big Blue Nation a little early and complete the required UK core class (CIS 112: Accelerated Composition and Communication). This is a great opportunity for incoming freshmen students who haven’t arrived in Lexington yet but want to complete a course before the busy fall semester begins.

ANA 109 & ANA 110 - Pre-Nursing Majors Only

Effective Fall Semester 2018, ANA 109 and ANA 110: Anatomy and Physiology for Nursing I and II, are closed to all students apart from declared pre-nursing majors, as they were originally designed. 


All other students are encouraged to take ANA 209, for which we are in the process of formalizing a laboratory component. Of course, I cannot promise when this will be completed, but hopefully it will not take long.
