Transitioning to College
The Ag and Medical Biotech program is a challenging degree. Whether you are still in high school or transferring from a community college, considering improving your understanding of calculus, chemistry and biology. If your high school offers Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate studies, consider studying Calculus, Biology, and Chemistry.
You can receive college credit for many of the AP and IB courses. Please review the Special Academic Programs section in the current UK Bulletin concerning the University of Kentucky Policy Guide for Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate studies.
