    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 should see the "General education requirements for transfer students" in the Transfer Admission section of this catalog. Degree requirements for College of Human Ecology programs include courses to meet UGE requirements.

    As required by the university, students must complete 18 credits in approved UGE courses, including at least 6 credit hours at the 300 level or above. Required credits are adjusted for transfer students and students who have completed credit by examination (AP, IB, CLEP, DANTES) or through study abroad programs approved by Kansas State University. Only courses completed at Kansas State University and approved for UGE can be used to meet these requirements.

    Approved UGE courses are marked with a University General Education course in course descriptions. For a current list of approved UGE courses:

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

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

    Students required to complete only 9 credits in UGE courses must have three of these areas represented. Students required to complete only 6 credits must have two of these areas represented. Only courses outside the department or school which offers the student's major can be applied toward the student's UGE requirement.

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

    Transfer courses
    Careful planning enables students to transfer courses from another college or university that will apply toward specific degree requirements at K-State. See tran.html for information about the transferability to Kansas State University of specific courses offered by most Kansas higher education institutions. Contact the College of Human Ecology Dean's Office with questions about transfer courses.
