Department of Agricultural Economics

Transferring to Kansas State University

We will do our best to accommodate transfer students with our 2+2 program. The 2+2 program makes it possible for you to graduate with a bachelors degree in four years: 2 years at your community college plus 2 years at K-State. The Department of Agricultural Economics is and has proven to be a great place for transfer students to earn a degree that can lead to great success. With so many career opportunities available, our students have bright futures awaiting them upon graduation. Explore the opportunities that await you.

To make a seamless transition between where you are now and K-State, you should come to K-State as a junior with approximately 60 credits that apply toward the requirements in Agricultural Economics or Agribusiness. Then work through the following steps:

Step 1

Determine which program of study best fits your desired career path. You can figure this out by looking at the careers section of the prospective student website. Finding the career you want will allow you to narrow your major options. Click here to check out different career fields.

Step 2

Figure out which of your classes will be able to be applied toward your degree. Click on the transfer equivalency link for your school. This is a very important step because not all of the courses available at your community college can be used to meet the requirements of our majors. Equivalency Website

Step 3

Fit those classes that will transfer into the major that you desire. Use the program of study sheets to help you determine what requirements you have met.
