Fourteen Additional Courses Approved for Automatic Transfer
(Topeka, Kansas) - The Kansas Board of Regents has approved fourteen additional college courses that will seamlessly transfer among the 32 public higher education institutions, bringing the total number of courses which transfer as direct equivalents at all public postsecondary institutions to 46.
Beginning in the summer 2014 term, the following courses will now be added:
Art History I-Prehistoric to Medieval
Art History II-Renaissance to Contemporary
Childhood Growth & Development
Introduction to Linguistic Anthropology
Logic and Critical Thinking
A complete list of courses can be found at: Transfer and Articulation.
Among this year’s goals of the Board is the commitment to improve transfer and articulation of courses throughout the system by approving a quality assurance policy and by approving additional courses for transfer. Each approved course has established core outcomes, which are observable and measurable actions that students will be able to perform upon successful completion of a course. Core outcomes are developed by faculty led discipline-specific groups, which meet annually or as necessary to confirm or articulate learning outcomes and discuss courses for inclusion in the Kansas System-Wide Transfer process.
As established in policy, the Board believes transfer to be a crucial element within a seamless educational system, which offers the best resources to provide a high quality education.
