45 Hour Articulation Agreement

A student who completes an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree based on a baccalaureate oriented sequence at a state and regionally accredited Kansas public community college and whose program of studies has met the requirements of the Kansas Public Community College-Kansas Regents Transfer Agreement and Articulation Guide will be accepted with junior standing and will have satisfied general education requirements of all Regents universities.

The following points of clarification have been developed regarding this transfer agreement:

General education provides students with facility in the use of the English Languages and a broad intellectual experience in the major fields of knowledge. It insures that each graduate will have experienced some of the content, method and system of values of the various disciplines which enable humanity to understand itself and its environment at a level of abstraction beyond that found in secondary school studies.

Although the following distribution of courses does not correspond to the general education requirements at any Kansas Regents institution, it will be accepted as having satisfied the general education requirements of all Kansas Regents institutions.

A minimum of 45 credit hours of general education with distribution in the following fields will be required. General education hours totaling less than 45 will be accepted, but transfer students must complete the remainder of this requirement before graduation from the receiving institution, which may require an additional semester(s).

12 hours of Basic Skills courses, including:
6 hours of English Composition
3 hours of Speech Communication
3 hours of college level Mathematics(statistics will be required of transfer students where university curriculum requires)

12 hours of Humanities courses from at least three of the following disciplines:
Art* -------Theatre*-------Philosophy-------Music*--------History------Literature
*Performance courses are excluded.

12 hours of Social and Behavioral Science courses from at least three of the following disciplines:
Sociology------------Political Science-----------Psychology

9 hours of Natural and Physical Science courses from at least two disciplines (lecture with lab).

Transcripts of students fulfilling the requirements of this agreement will be appropriately coded by the sending institution.

Students attempting to transfer into Technology, Engineering and Architecture programs are considered outside this agreement. It is recommended that 2 + 2 and 2 + 3 arrangements be developed for the above programs of study.

Acceptance of course credit for transfer from such programs will be determined by the receiving institution on the basis of application of the courses to the baccalaureate program in the major field of the student.
