Candidates for this degree must present an organized program of study which meets the following core requirements. Authority for substitutions must be obtained from the Vice President of Academic Affairs.

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. It is the responsibility of the student to know and to observe the requirements of his/her curriculum and the rules governing academic work. Although the Student Success Advisor will attempt to help the student make wise decisions, the ultimate responsibility for meeting the requirements rests with the student.
