Curriculum pathway leading to an Associate in Science in Liberal Arts & Sciences for students seeking a transfer degree to a 4-year institution:

Dean: Dr. Marvin Hunt

This transfer program is designed to meet general education requirements for students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university program in Business. Students should contact the Counseling Department and the four-year college of their choice to obtain the course requirements of the transfer institution.

Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
