K-STATE DEVELOPS MORE 2+2 AGREEMENTS WITH JOHNSON COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE
MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University has established new 2+2 agreements with Johnson County Community College in Overland Park.
The agreements, signed March 26 on the community college's campus, make it possible for students at Johnson County to earn their associate degrees and then transfer credits to complete a K-State bachelor's degree through distance education without leaving their community.
The new agreements signed with Johnson County include: Associate of Art to Bachelor of Science in general business; Associate of Applied Science in food and beverage management to Bachelor of Science in technology management; and Associate of Applied Science in hotel and lodging management to Bachelor of Science in technology management.
K-State and Johnson County also re-signed and updated the agreement for the Associate of Applied Science in food and beverage management to Bachelor of Science in food science, science option.
"An on-going partnership with Johnson County allows K-State to deliver a degree that is highly respected, accessible and affordable to the citizens of the Kansas City metro area," said Sue Maes, dean of continuing education at K-State. "Completion of a bachelor's degree not only broadens career opportunities, but also helps improve the intellectual contributions individuals can make to their communities."
