The content of KNPE 125/3.0 and KNPE 225/3.0 overlaps the content of PHGY 210, 212, 214/6.0.  Therefore, these KNPE courses are exclusions to PHGY 210/6.0 (etc.).

  • If a student has completed KNPE 125/3.0 and subsequently takes PHGY 210/6.0 (etc.), they will not get credit for 3.0 units of PHGY.  Students must ask for permission to substitute the other 3.0 units of PHGY 210/6.0 for KNPE 225/3.0 - and, they must sign an Academic Exception Report in the SKHS UG Office.
  • If a student has completed both KNPE 125/3.0 and KNPE 225/3.0 and subsequently takes PHGY 210/6.0 (etc.) they will not get credit for PHGY 210/6.0 (etc.).
