Pre-Nutrition

Curriculum pathway leading to an Associate in General Studies for students transferring into the following 4-year program:

Dean: Dr. Edward Kremer

Academic Advisor: Dr. Curtis Smith

The following suggested sequence of courses is designed for a transfer program to the College of Human Ecology, Kansas State University leading to a Bachelor of Science in Foods and Nutrition. A student should plan on attending KSU six semesters to complete this major.

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.
