K-STATE EXTENDING MORE 2+2 AGREEMENTS BEYOND KANSAS BORDER

MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University is continuing the development of 2+2 agreements with partner institutions outside Kansas so students can complete a K-State bachelor's degree without leaving their home communities or sacrificing their jobs.

A new 2+2 agreement was signed May 4 between K-State and Metropolitan Community College in Kansas City, Mo. Under this agreement, Metropolitan students can earn an associate of arts degree and then transfer credits to earn a K-State bachelor's degree in general business through distance education. The 2+2 agreement applies to students attending any of Metropolitan's five campuses in the greater Kansas City, Mo., area.

Betty Stevens, K-State's associate dean of continuing education, met with Paul Long, vice chancellor of educational services at Metropolitan Community College, to complete the signing.

"There are many students in Kansas City who want a K-State degree but who can't leave their home, family or job," Stevens said. "This agreement makes it much easier and more cost effective. Metropolitan Community College is really offering a great service to their past, present and future graduates through this partnership."

Additional 2+2 signings with community college partners outside Kansas and more agreements with existing partner institutions are currently in development.
