The Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) program regulation (11 KAR 15:090) has been modified to specify that only one cooperative education course per academic year will count for purposes of satisfying yearly KEES curriculum requirements.
Therefore, beginning with the 2012-2013 academic year, course codes have be included in the KEES eligibility determination. Students taking cooperative or work experience courses must have four (4) courses not identified as cooperative or work experience listed on their transcript to be considered eligible for KEES.
For more information, please refer to the Kentucky Uniform Academic Course Code.
