  • Kansas Board of Regents - Systemwide Transfer Courses

    The Kansas Board of Regents provides an approved list of Systemwide Transfer (SWT) courses for transfer. The courses on this list will transfer to any Kansas public institution of higher education (community college, technical college, and/or university) offering an equivalent course. 

  • Transfer Kansas Portal

    The Transfer Kansas portal provides a detailed list of transfer courses available in each subject area and at each Kansas public college/university.

    Use this state of Kansas resource to confirm that transfer courses you take at HutchCC will transfer to any Kansas public institution of higher education that offers an equivalent course.

    To view the Kansas Transfer Portal’s detailed list of transfer courses available in each subject area and at each Kansas public college/university, click the Course Transfer logo below.  Then click the picture of Kansas to open the portal. On the page that appears, click the Transfer Courses tab.

  • Articulation Agreements

    Articulation Agreements (also called 2+2 agreements) show students the specific courses they will complete at the community college and the courses they will then take at a specific four-year college in a specific field of study.  By successfully completing the designated courses as noted on the agreement, students are assured a bachelor’s degree in 4 years.

  • Kansas Board of Regents-Systemwide General Education Requirements

    Kansas Board of Regents – Systemwide General Education Requirements

    Starting in Fall 2024, public institutions of higher education in the state of Kansas will follow the Systemwide General Education framework determined by the Kansas Board of Regents.  Some private colleges will also follow this framework.

    What does that mean at HutchCC?

    Students working toward the Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS), or Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degrees will have a 34-35 credit hour group of general education courses to complete as part of the degree.  This is called the General Education Framework.  Successful completion* of this General Education Framework  will be indicated on the student’s transcript.  Upon transfer to a Kansas public institution of higher education, the 34-35 General Education Framework credit hours completed at HutchCC will satisfy the general education requirements at the receiving institution, unless an exception for a specific program has been approved by the Kansas Board of Regents.  Students who transfer before completing the General Education Framework will have courses evaluated at the receiving institution on a course-by-course basis, based on the list of Systemwide Transfer Courses in each General Education bucket category.

    Students must complete each course with a grade of C or better.  The receiving Kansas public institution of higher education may accept a grade of D.  Students should contact the receiving institution to discuss that institution’s policy on accepting a grade of D.  If a student is pursuing a selective admission program with a minimum grade standard, the student may be required to retake a course to earn a higher grade.

  • Reverse Transfer

    Reverse Transfer is the process of retroactively granting Associate degrees to students who did not complete the requirements of an associate degree before they transferred from a Kansas community college or technical college to a Kansas public university.

    The Kansas Board of Regents policy states that each Kansas public university shall provide a mechanism for each student who is transferring credits from a community college or technical college to a university to participate in the reverse transfer process.

    Each Kansas public university has a slightly different reverse transfer process. There could be a question on the university admissions application about reverse transfer, a designated contact person at the university, or there may be a form the student must complete. No matter the process at the university, if a student wants to take advantage of reverse transfer in the state of Kansas, transfer students are required to opt-in to the reverse transfer process. Doing so allows the Registrars at both institutions to work together on your behalf.
