The typical educational journey often starts with a student earning a community college degree and then moving on to a four-year institution. In a progressive move, Barton Community College and Kansas State University have made it easier for students to transfer credits in the opposite direction.
The two schools have teamed up by signing a reverse transfer agreement that will allow students at KSU to seamlessly transfer credits to Barton with the goal of earning or completing an associate’s degree.
Both schools wish to provide all students with an easy path to their educational goal regardless of how traditional or non-traditional that path may be.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for transfer students to easily transfer credits received from KSU, back to Barton to complete their associate degree,” Barton Vice President Dr. Penny Quinn said. “For example, I see wonderful benefits for students who began at Barton, but for whatever reason, transferred to KSU prior to completing their degree. Reverse transfer makes it easy for these students to have their completed Barton associate degree in hand, which is much more impressive as they complete job applications or develop their resume.”
