The Kansas Board of Regents has approved and faculty representatives from Kansas public postsecondary institutions have agreed upon the learning outcomes for the systemwide transfer courses listed below.  A student who completes any of these courses at a Kansas public university, community college, or technical college will be able to transfer the course to any Kansas public postsecondary institution offering an equivalent course.

Beginning in the Fall of 2014, students who transfer to a Kansas public university from a Kansas public community college or technical college are eligible for Reverse Transfer, which allows for the attainment of any associate degree for which one is eligible along the way to additional certificates and degrees.  

Within a student's first year, or upon eligibility for reverse transfer, those who transfer coursework from a community college or technical college to a public university will be notified if they are eligible to be considered for reverse transfer degree status, and which courses are needed to finish the related degree.  To be eligible, a student must have completed at least 45 credit hours at one or more public community college or technical college in Kansas. Students who then complete the coursework for a given associate degree will be eligible to receive that degree, administered automatically by correspondence between the new institution and the community college or technical college the student last attended.

Students should contact the Registrar's Office of the institution they are attending for more information. 


  • Systemwide Reverse Transfer procedures are available here (pdf). 
  • Systemwide Reverse Transfer institutional contacts are available here (pdf).

Each year faculty from all 32 institutions are invited to participate in the Kansas Core Outcomes Group Conference (KCOG) to articulate core outcomes for courses to be recommended for systemwide transfer.

The 2018 KCOG Conference will be held October 12, 2018, at University of Kansas Edwards Campus.

To prepare for this conference, attending faculty should:

  • Be familiar with the course, its syllabus, and the course number and title used by the institution.
  • Be empowered to write student outcomes and represent the vote of the institution for each course articulated for systemwide transfer.  

In order to keep the number of faculty attending the annual conferences to a manageable number, disciplines will be asked to meet for reviewing courses as needed.  


The following courses were recommended by faculty groups or institutions and selected for possible consideration as Systemwide Transfer (SWT) courses by the Transfer and Articulation Council based on established criteria:

  • American Literature I
  • American Literature II
  • Comparative Politics
  • Introduction to Early Childhood
  • Marriage and Family
  • Music Theory II
  • Principles of Leadership

Additional courses, which are currently included in Systemwide Transfer, will be reviewed for updating core outcomes as necessary:

  • Art History I
  • Art History II
  • Childhood Growth and Development
  • English Composition I
  • English Composition II
  • French I
  • French II
  • General Biology and Lab for Non-Majors
  • Introduction to Computer and Applications
  • Introduction to Political Science
  • Introduction to Linguistic Anthropology
  • Logic and Critical Thinking
  • Macroeconomics
  • Microeconomics
  • Music Theory I
  • Physical Science I and Lab
  • Social Problems
  • Stagecraft
  • Theatre Practicum
  • U.S. History to 1877
  • U.S. History since 1877

To facilitate transfer and articulation across the system of public higher education, the Kansas Board of Regents established a Transfer and Articulation Council (TAAC) with oversight responsibility of implementing the transfer and articulation policy.

Faculty led discipline-specific groups (Kansas Core Outcome Groups) meet annually or as necessary, to confirm or articulate learning outcomes and discuss courses for inclusion in the Kansas Systemwide Transfer process.  Each course has core outcomes, which are observable and measurable actions that students will be able to perform upon successful completion of a course. 

Kansas Core Outcomes Groups Reports are developed annually and include reports from each discipline group:
