McKendree University

A student transferring to McKendree University, who has received a KCTCS AA, AS, or AAS is considered to have met all general education requirements, provided the degree is not considered vocational. 
For students who have completed a vocational program or hold no prior degree, the courses are individually evaluated to determine which are transferable and what requirements have been met. Transcripts will be evaluated by the Office of Academic Records and the Division Chair of the department.
