Wichita State, Butler sign reverse articulation agreement

  • Published Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012, at 2:52 p.m.

The presidents of Butler Community College and Wichita State University signed an agreement permitting eligible students to transfer select course work from Wichita State to Butler Community College to complete requirements for a Butler associate degree. It is called a reverse articulation agreement.

This innovative agreement enables eligible students to transfer credits from Wichita State back to Butler to complete their associate degree while simultaneously working toward their bachelor’s.

College students trying to earn associate degrees, even after transferring to a four-year school, will find that task easier south central Kansas of today.

This arrangement will help graduation rates for schools, WSU president John Bardo said.

Eligible Wichita State students will: 1. have transferred 45 credits from Butler (or a combination of accumulated hours from other accredited institutions); 2. completed 15 or more credits at Wichita State; 3. met residency requirements for a Butler degree; and 4. have indicated their willingness to participate in reverse transfer.
