Articulation agreements between Kansas Wesleyan University and our partner schools provide peace of mind in the transfer process by insuring your credit hours will transfer to KWU. While Kansas Wesleyan welcomes applications for admission from any student, the agreements pertain to students earning an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree.

  • If you earn an AA or AS from a partner school, you are guaranteed admission to Kansas Wesleyan University.
  • The agreement requires completion of a minimum of 45 credit hours of general education courses with distribution as follows
  • If your cumulative GPA is below 2.5, KWU officials will work with you to determine your potential for success and discuss available academic support programming.
  • If your cumulative GPA is 2.75 or greater, you will qualify for an academic/activity scholarship.
  • Kansas Wesleyan guarantees the acceptance of all associate degree program credits, up to a maximum of 63. This includes courses counted toward the associate degree taken through high school dual enrollment arrangements.
    • 12 hours of Basic Skills courses: 6 hours of English composition, 3 hours of Speech Communication, and 3 hours of College-level Mathematics
    • 12 hours of Humanities courses from at least three of the following disciplines: Art, Theatre, Philosophy, Music, History, or Literature. (Performance courses are excluded)
    • 6 hours of Social and Behavioral Science courses from at least two of the following disciplines: Sociology, Psychology, Political Science, Economics, Geography, or Anthropology
