    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.

    Bachelor's degrees
    Degree requirements for students pursuing a bachelor's 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.

    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.

    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 bachelor's 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 bachelor's 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 UGE courses.

    In course descriptions, UGE courses are marked with a University General Education course. For more information about UGE requirements, see the Degrees section of this curriculum guide. For a current list of approved UGE courses: www.ksu.edu/ registrar/enroll/gened.html
