Co-op Course Codes
Please note the cooperative education and work experience course codes are within the Kentucky Academic Course Code list, they are also provided as a separate document with this communication. The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority 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 will be included in the KEES eligibility determination. Students taking cooperative or work experience courses must have 4 courses not listed as cooperative or work experience listed to be considered eligible for KEES.
