KANSAS CITY, Mo. — For students at Kansas community colleges, transferring to an independent college has never been easier.

On Tuesday afternoon, 20 independent Kansas colleges entered into a Global Transfer and Course Articulation agreement with each of the state's 19 community colleges.

Once the agreement is in place, any student who holds an Associate of Science or Associate of Arts from a community college in Kansas will have fulfilled the necessary transfer requirements to attend an independent college.
