Barton Community College joined 18 Kansas community colleges and 19 independent, four-year Kansas colleges in signing a milestone transfer agreement on Tuesday that will create a seamless transfer of all general education courses to independent universities and colleges and will fulfill all general education requirements.

The initiation of the Global Transfer and Course Articulation Agreement was officially signed on Sept. 20 at Friends University in Wichita after a discussion between the presidents representing both the Kansas Community Colleges and the Kansas Independent Colleges.

Barton President Dr. Carl Heilman said Barton is proud to be a part of this initiative.

“This is a landmark agreement that ensures students will be able to transfer courses with ease and keep their focus on their education and future plans,” he said. “This type of agreement encourages students to continue building on their education after they’ve completed a two-year degree and to do so while staying in Kansas.”
