Students interested in completing the bachelor’s degree program in exercise science should follow this course of study. Two years of a general education programs and two years exercise science courses must be completed. Students should consult with the college where they plan to transfer at an early date in their college career.

The Associate in Science Degree meets the Board of Regents Transfer and Articulation Agreement. A Student completing this program and transferring to a public university, therefore, “will be accepted as having satisfied the general education requirements of all Kansas public universities.”

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.
