Kansas State University and Manhattan Area Technical College (MATC) are making it easier for students to transfer credit hours earned at the university toward completion of their community college or technical degree.
Recently, Kirk Schulz, president of K-State and Ron Edleston, president of MATC, signed a reverse transfer agreement between the two schools. On Nov. 19, representatives from both institutions gathered at K-State’s Manhattan campus to recognize the agreement. Larry Moeder, assistant vice president for student life and director of student financial assistance; Bill Disberger, assistant director of undergraduate admissions; and Emily Lehning, assistant vice president of new student services, attended on behalf of the university.
The agreement will allow credits earned at K-State to transfer toward an unfinished associate degree at MATC.
Under the agreement, students enrolled who previously attended MATC, or who are currently enrolled at the community college, meet its resident credit requirement and are able to transfer a minimum of 45 credit hours to the university, will be eligible for reverse transfer credit to facilitate their degree completion at the technical college. The agreement is effective this semester — fall 2012.
