Friends University enhances its existing statewide transfer policy with an updated Transfer Equivalency List

In the fall of 2019, Friends University adopted a statewide policy to make transferring from any Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) community college easier for students. Friends is pleased to showcase a new updated Transfer Equivalency List for transfer students allowing for an easier transfer opportunity. The statewide policy allows individuals entering Friends University with AA/AS degrees from KBOR community colleges to automatically satisfy all of Friends University’s general education requirements, except for the religion requirements. Traditional undergraduate students must complete an additional nine hours of religion courses while adult undergraduate students must complete an additional three hours of religion and a three-hour capstone course. The updated Transfer Equivalency List gives transfer students the opportunity to view the transfer articulation Friends University has for other colleges and universities both in the state of Kansas and outside of Kansas whether it be another state in the United States or an international institution.   

“The statewide transfer policy has benefitted many of our students the last several years and the upgraded Transfer Equivalency List is an added resource for transfer students,” said Dr. Ken Stoltzfus, vice president of academic affairs at Friends University. “Having a transfer-friendly policy in place for students who begin their higher education journey at a community college makes for an easier transition for students who want to complete a bachelor’s degree at Friends University.”   

The statewide transfer policy supports Friends University’s articulation agreements with various community colleges by facilitating a more streamlined transfer process for students who graduate with an associate’s degree and desire to continue their education at a private Christian liberal arts university.  

Friends University, a Christian University of Quaker heritage, equips students to honor God and serve others by integrating their intellectual, spiritual and professional lives.
