MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University has signed 2+2 agreements in a new partnership with Neosho County Community College in Chanute.

The agreements, signed Sept. 28, allow students at Neosho County to transfer credits to complete a K-State bachelor's degree through distance education after earning their associate degree.

The agreements signed include: associate of applied science in energy management to bachelor of science in technology management; associate of science in business administration to bachelor of science in general business; and associate of science in social science to bachelor of science in interdisciplinary social science.

"With so many students on their way to a bachelor's degree, life often gets in the way and the degree is never obtained," said Barb Newhouse, associate director for academic programs at K-State's Division of Continuing Education. "With a completed associate degree and the opportunity to take the remaining two years online through K-State, the place-bound student has more options and more flexibility to pursue and complete a four-year degree program."

A degree map and more information about K-State's 2+2 agreements with Neosho County and other community and technical colleges in Kansas and other states are available at
