    Except can be used as a preposition to mean something excluded. For example, we say:

    You can take all my books except this one.

    This means this one is not allowed to take, but all the others are.

    Re: except

    The same meaning but used slightly differently.

    Except under exceptional circumstances, I would expect you to accept the rules of this college at all times.
