Revised UCORE website replaces handbook

As of Spring 2020, the UCORE website has become the primary resource for information concerning UCORE policy, procedure, and curriculum for faculty, advisors, and students. The website has fully taken the place of the PDF UCORE Handbook, which is now a historical document. If you currently use a link to or downloaded PDF version of the UCORE Handbook, please disregard it moving forward.

The Handbook’s table of contents has been transformed into a navigation tool that connects the information formerly documented in the PDF Handbook with its location on the UCORE website.
