UK Core – Revised Gen Ed curriculum A revised general education curriculum will be designed to smooth students' transition from high school to a research university, and to establish the foundations for advanced college- level learning. The general education curriculum will lay the foundation for effective citizenship in our pluralistic society that is increasingly interconnected with a multilingual, global community.
UK Core Entrance Requirement competency equivalent of two years of high school foreign language All entering students, including transfer students, must demonstrate a novice-mid proficiency level in a foreign language through an outside assessment rather than through high school seat-time.
Ways to satisfy entrance requirement STAMP score of 2 or higher (novice mid) AP exam (score of 2 or higher) SAT Subject Test (score of 2 or higher) Students who begin study of a new language at UK do not need to demonstrate entrance proficiency.
Ways to satisfy entrance requirement For languages for which the STAMP is not available (for example, Latin), UK will administer its own assessment exam. For non-native speakers of English, a TOEFL exam score of 71 or higher will constitute proof of proficiency.
