    University general education requirements
    Kansas State University has established requirements for a university general education program. See "University general education requirements" in the Degrees section of this catalog. Transfer students and students who have completed course credits through advanced placement examinations should see the "General education requirements for transfer students" in the Transfer Admission section of this catalog.

    As required by the university, students must meet university general education requirements of 18 credits in approved general education courses, at least 6 credit hours of which must be at the 300 level or above. Only courses completed at Kansas State University and approved for university general education can be used to meet these requirements.

    For more information about university general education requirements, see the Degrees section of this catalog. For a current list of approved university general education courses:

    To ensure breadth in the general education experience, each College of Human Ecology student must complete at least one approved university general education course in four of the following areas:

  • Quantitative studies
  • Economics
  • Social sciences
  • Humanities
  • Life sciences
  • Physical sciences
  • Courses from professional colleges

    For transfer students who are required to complete only 9 credits in university general education courses, three of these areas must be represented. For transfer students required to complete only 6 credits, two of these areas must be represented.

    Grade requirement
    Grades of C or higher are required in all professional studies and supporting courses in College of Human Ecology degree programs.

    Transfer programs
    Careful planning enables students to transfer courses from another college or university that will apply toward specific degree requirements at K-State. Students who plan to transfer should contact the College of Human Ecology Dean's Office as soon as possible to verify the transferability of courses and plan their transfer programs. Two-plus-two articulated programs are available for selected programs at some Kansas community colleges.

    Information about the transferability to Kansas State University of specific courses offered by most Kansas higher education institutions is available on the World Wide Web under the heading Kansas State University Transfer Equivalency Information. This information can be accessed at on the World Wide Web.
