Regents add five new courses to seamless transfer list
(Topeka, Kan.) - The Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) has approved an additional five courses for seamless transfer across the Regents’ system, bringing the total number of systemwide transfer courses to 84. A student who completes any of these courses at a Kansas public university, community college, or technical college will be able to transfer the course to any Kansas public postsecondary institution offering an equivalent course.
“Seamless transfer helps Kansans earn degrees by ensuring that credit obtained at one of our institutions easily transfers to the other colleges and universities in our system,” said KBOR President and CEO Dr. Blake Flanders. “Our institutions are continually evaluating courses and discussing learning outcomes to increase the number of courses that seamlessly transfer.”
The new courses added by the Board at its January meeting include environmental science, financial accounting and managerial accounting. For a complete list of systemwide transfer courses, please visit kansasregents.org/academic_affairs/transfer-articulation.
Beginning in the fall of 2014, students who have transferred to a Kansas public university from a Kansas public community college or technical college are eligible for Reverse Transfer, which allows for the attainment of any associate degree for which one is eligible along the way to additional certificates and degrees.
