Transferability

Transfer Programs are designed to position you for a successful transfer to a four year college in order to complete a Bachelor's degree.

The earlier you identify your transfer institution, the easier it will be to align your Barton program of study to fit the transfer institution's requirements.

Barton has many Transfer & Articulation Agreements with four year colleges that specifically direct your studies in certain programs for seamless transition from Barton to the transfer school. If none of our Transfer & Articulation Agreements match your educational goals, the Kansas Public Colleges and Universities Transfer Agreement and Articulation Guide will help you to meet the requirements necessary to graduate from Barton and transfer successfully to the public universities in Kansas.

If you plan to transfer outside the state of Kansas, it will be very helpful to identify your transfer institution early and work with that school's guidelines in order to ensure a smooth transfer. Your academic advisor is happy to help, or your may contact the Advisement Center: advisement@bartonccc.edu
