    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.

    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.
