    University General Education Program

    The College of Technology and Aviation requires each student to complete course work that fulfills the university general education requirements. The following information describes these requirements for associate and baccalaureate degree programs in the college.

    Associate degrees
    Degree requirements for students pursuing an associate degree in the College of Technology and Aviation include 6 credit hours of approved university general education courses. Students may take no university general education courses from within their major field of study.

    Baccalaureate degrees
    Degree requirements for students pursuing a baccalaureate degree in the College of Technology and Aviation include 18 credit hours of approved university general education courses, of which at least 6 credit hours are at the 300 level or above.

    Students may take no more that six credit hours of university general education course work with the same course number prefix, and they may take no university general education courses from within their major field of study.

    Policy for transfer students
    Students entering Kansas State University transferring credit from accredited two-year or four-year institutions are required to complete a minimum number of university general education credit hours at K-State. The minimum number of university general education credit hours required is based upon total number of completed transfer credit hours accepted at K-State on the student's initial date of entry.

    Each transfer student is required to complete a minimum of 6 credit hours of K-State upper-division university general education courses (300 and above) as specified in the program in which they will graduate.

    Policy for curriculum changes
    Students changing curricula within Kansas State University must satisfy the university general education requirements for the program in which they will graduate. Students entering a baccalaureate degree program after completing an associate degree at K-State are not considered to be transfer students, as far as the university general education requirements are concerned. These students must meet the university general education requirements for the baccalaureate curriculum that they are entering.

    University general education course selection
    University general education courses may overlay the degree requirements in a given curriculum, to satisfy concurrently both the accreditation criteria for that program and the university general education requirements. Refer to the latest college advising information for a complete list of approved university general education courses.

    In course descriptions, university general education courses are marked with a University General Education course. For more information about university general education requirements, see the Degrees section of this catalog.
