Students who took the UK Animal Science course in high school will receive a letter from UK declaring the earned college credit for Introduction to Animal Science. Students must bring their letter to the WKU Department of Agriculture and Food Science in the Environmental Science and Technology building (EST), room #269, to get a signature from the Department Chair. Those students must have earned a B or greater for a Department Chair signature. Then students can take signed letters to the Registrar's Office for credit. The credit cannot be used for ANSC 140 for animal science or pre-vet concentrations.
Students will need to bring a copy of their Certificate of Recognition to the Department of Agriculture and Food Science in the Environmental Science and Technology building (EST), room #269 to get a signature. After the certificate is signed, the student should take it to the Registrar's Office in Potter Hall and fill out the form for the departmental exam. A fee of $25 per credit hour will be paid at the Registrar's Office. Please note that credit is counted as a general agriculture course and cannot be used for required courses.
