Traditionally, many students attended the same university for their entire college career.

As higher education expenses have exploded, however, more students are electing to begin their college education at a less-expensive two-year college before transferring to a four-year institution.

Transfer or articulation agreements are formal agreements between two or more colleges or universities documenting the transfer policies for specific academic programs or degrees.

For example, as many as 30 credit hours from technical courses at Salina Area Technical College may count toward a bachelor’s degree at Wesleyan. KWU also accepts up to 63 credit hours for any general education classes with a grade of C or higher.
