Associate of General Studies

Definition
This is a transfer degree which can be applied toward the general education requirements for a baccalaureate degree at the Regents’ universities in Kansas. Although it is not designed to satisfy the requirements entirely, it is appropriate for students who are having difficulty selecting a specific program of study or who are primarily concerned with a broad survey of interests. In some limited cases, this is also the preferred degree for students transferring in Agriculture.
