Co-op Course Codes
Please note the cooperative education and work experience course codes are within the Searchable State Course Codes Database. The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority program regulation 11 KAR 15:090 has been modified to specify that all co-op course codes will count for the number of credits in the student’s schedule for the purposes of satisfying yearly KEES curriculum requirements. Therefore, cooperative course codes will be included in the KEES eligibility determination.

Students taking 901005 (work experience courses) must have 4 courses not listed as work experience to be considered eligible for KEES.
