To petition the General Education Exceptions Committee to accept one or more courses taken from other colleges or universities as meeting the requirements for one or more Graduation Writing, USP or UK Core courses, please select the approprate form below. If you have any questions, please contact Joanie Ett-Mims at or call 257-9039.

  • Please Run a Degree Audit in "myUK GPS"  to determine before submitting whether the UK Core or USP area for which you are requesting an exception is already fulfilled by another course.

  • Please determine before submitting whether you are requesting an exception for a general education (UK Core or USP) requirement, graduation writing requirement, OR a college requirement.

  • NOTE: If you are requesting an exception for a college requirement (Arts & Sciences or Business & Economics, for example), then you will need to contact your college's main advising office rather than pursue a general education or graduation writing requirement exception. Your academic advisor can assist you with any questions.
