Finish Your Degree

Kansas State University Global Campus accepts transfer credits from community colleges, technical colleges and other universities – even if it has been several years since you were last enrolled.

After you submit your application to K-State and all official documentation has been received, an official evaluation of credit will occur. Learn more about how to apply by selecting your program of interest.

Undergraduate Students Transferring Credits from a…

Four-Year Institution:

In order to receive a bachelor’s degree from K-State, you must:

  • complete at least 30 credits from K-State
  • complete at least 20 of the last 30 credits from K-State

What does that mean for you? For instance, if you wish to earn a bachelor’s degree that requires 120 credits to graduate, you may transfer up to 90 credits from another four-year institution. If your program requires 126 credits to graduate, you may transfer up to 96 credits. Learn more about degree requirements.

Two-Year Institution:

The same rules apply as students transferring credits from a four-year institution; however, only half of your required credits may be transferred from an accredited two-year college. So if you wish to earn a bachelor’s degree that requires 120 credits to graduate, you may transfer up to 60 credits from your community or technical college. Learn more about degree requirements.

Support Programs for Community or Technical College Students

If you are planning to attend a community or technical college before attending K-State, you may be interested in one of our transfer programs – 2+2, DirectLink or Reverse Transfer.


This program provides streamlined curriculum guides to help you complete your associate degree and bachelor’s degree faster. This program is best suited if you currently have little or no college credit. The curriculum guides show all degree requirements in a nice, neat, organized manner, so you know the courses needed to earn your online degree at K-State. Your associate degree can be completed online or on campus at your community or technical college to complement the online bachelor’s degree.


Designed for first-year students at Kansas community and technical colleges, this program will provide you with free, customized support and resources as you transition from your community college to K-State. Resources include customized curriculum guides, campus visits and connections with K-State advisors early on, as well as an application fee waiver from K-State. DirectLink is only available for select on-campus and online bachelor’s degree programs at this time.

Unsure whether you qualify for DirectLink or a 2+2?
Let us help!

Reverse Transfer

If you transfer to K-State from a Kansas public community or technical college but have not already received an associate degree, you may be eligible for reverse transfer. This program allows you to use the credits you’ve earned toward your degree at K-State to attain an eligible associate degree. Why does this matter? Sometimes life happens, and we want to make sure you have your associate degree even if you are unable to finish your bachelor’s degree.
