KCKCC Offers New Exercise Science Articulation Agreement with KU-Edwards

KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- There is exciting news in Kansas City Kansas Community College’s Exercise Program.

KCKCC has recently signed a new articulation agreement with the University of Kansas-Edwards Campus that will allow students who complete two years at KCKCC to transfer directly to KU-Edwards to complete a bachelor’s degree in exercise science.

“This will provide a direct link to continue their education to earn a bachelor degree in exercise science,” said Susie Myers, coordinator and professor in the exercise science program at KCKCC. “KU-Edwards campus is only 20 minutes away and easily accessible to our students.”

Once the KCKCC course work is finished, the articulation agreement begins. KCKCC exercise science students will complete all 68 credit hours listed in the KCKCC course guide. Once they have completed their associate’s degree, all credits will transfer to the KU-Edwards campus in Overland Park in a smooth, streamlined manner.

They can then start work immediately on their bachelor’s degree. The program starts in fall 2014. The 2+2 Program is similar to agreements KCKCC has with other major universities including Kansas State University, Park University, Pittsburg State University and the University of Missouri-Kansas City, among others.

Only courses in which a student has earned at least a C will be transferred. In addition, students must have a minimum overall grade point average of 2.75. Other requirements might also need to be met to fulfill the University of Kansas admission process.
