K-STATE DEVELOPS 2+2 AGREEMENTS WITH BUTLER, COWLEY COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGES

MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University established new 2+2 partnerships with Cowley County Community College in Arkansas City and Butler Community College in El Dorado. The agreements were signed Oct. 9 on the community college campuses.

The partnerships make it possible for students at the community colleges 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 following 2+2 agreements were signed with Butler Community College: Associate of Applied Science in hotel management to Bachelor of Science in technology management; Associate of Applied Science in restaurant management to Bachelor of Science in technology management; Associate of Applied Science in real-time reporting to Bachelor of Science in technology management; and Associate of Science in business administration to Bachelor of Science in general business.

The following 2+2 agreements were signed with Cowley County Community College: Associate of Art in accounting to Bachelor of Science in general business; Associate of Art in business administration to Bachelor of Science in general business; Associate of Applied Science in computer forensics to Bachelor of Science in technology management; Associate of Applied Science in criminal justice to Bachelor of Science in technology management; and Associate of Applied Science in Web design to Bachelor of Science in technology management.

Butler and Cowley are the first schools in the Wichita and south central Kansas area to develop 2+2 partnerships with K-State.

"Through these partnerships we can enhance the services, access and opportunity that both the community colleges and K-State can provide for Kansans to complete their bachelor's degrees in south central Kansas," said Sue C. Maes, dean of continuing education at K-State.
