It is the policy of Wichita State University (WSU) to accept all credits – with the exception of remedial coursework – earned at an accredited post-secondary institution. Each academic college or department within WSU determines how those credits apply toward a particular degree program. Sometimes there can be a significant difference between what transfers and what counts toward a degree, especially if the courses are vocational in nature.
WSU has very specific General
Education requirements. (www.wichita.edu/generaleducation)|
This table just lists those transfer courses from KANSAS colleges that have already been approved to count as General Education courses.
The General Education codes are in the far right-hand column.
A1 = Fine Arts Introductory course
A2 = Humanities Introductory course
A4 = Fine Arts & Humanities Further Study course
B2 = Social & Behavioral Sciences Introductory course
B4 = Social & Behavioral Sciences Further Study course
C2 = Math & Natural Sciences Introductory course
C4 = Math & Natural Sciences Further Study course
To look up transfer courses that will count as a General Education course at WSU:
Course information for Kansas colleges and universities is extensive. The information for other colleges is limited to those courses that have previously appeared on a WSU transfer student’s transcript. If a transfer course is not listed, it is because a student has not yet transferred that course to WSU.
A transfer course that has a WSU equivalency course number of 2000, 4000, 6000, or 8000 is counted as an elective. Some courses with a specific WSU equivalent course will also only count as an elective, depending upon the student’s program at WSU. The number of elective hours that count toward a degree can vary from 3 to 40, depending upon the academic college or department’s program.
