Articulated Transfer Agreements

Articulated transfer agreements are arrangements between Washburn and one or more HLC-accredited institutions in which the institutions involved agree to provide or accept some portion of educational programs offered by Washburn.

The department of Allied Health in the School of Applied Studies has partnered with the University of Nebraska Medical Center to increase the number of clinical laboratory scientists in the health care profession since 2015. Through this articulated agreement, Washburn students can earn a bachelor’s degree in Clinical Laboratory Science.

The UNMC program provides clinical laboratory education, including instruction and curriculum components, both didactic and clinical education, as defined and required in the accreditation standards of the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).

For more information, contact Michelle Shipley in the Allied Health department. 

Since 1990, the College of Arts and Sciences at Washburn has co-operated 3+2 programs with both the University of Kansas and Kansas State University. Through this articulated agreement, Washburn students earn a bachelor's degree in Engineering.

Students typically attend Washburn for three years, pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics or Mathematics before finishing their degree at either the University of Kansas or Kansas State, majoring in a specific field within that institution’s College of Engineering.

For more information, contact Pre-Engineering Coordinator Keith Mazachek.

The School of Computing and Engineering Dual Degree Program agreement enables Washburn students to earn both a bachelor's degree from Washburn and a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering, computer science, or information technology from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Students must complete two years at Washburn before applying to the SCE Dual Degree Program, and applications are jointly assessed by Washburn and UMKC. Admitted students receive guidance from both institutions.

Students may spend either three or four years at Washburn, then complete the program as a degree-seeking transfer student with two years of full-time study at UMKC.

For more information, contact Pre-Engineering Coordinator Keith Mazachek or Karen Othmer in the Computer Science Information department.

The Law Early Admission Program (LEAP) is an agreement between the Washburn School of Law and Baker University that reduces the number of years spent on combined undergraduate and law education, lowers the total cost and allows earlier entry into the job market.

The LEAP program is offered to academically talented and highly motivated undergraduate students at Baker, and allows Baker’s undergraduate students early entry into law school by enrolling at Washburn Law on a “3+3 years” or “3½+3 years” track. The affiliation, which began in 2016, is structured to assist these students with their preparation for law school and pairs students early with law faculty and attorney mentors.

As part of the agreement, Baker agrees to accept and transfer credit earned at the Washburn School of Law to satisfy undergraduate requirements at Baker.

In order to address the need for access to quality legal services in Kansas’ rural communities, Washburn University School of Law and Kansas State University worked together to create the Rural Legal Practice Initiative in the summer of 2016 for select Kansas State declared pre-law students.

The initiative provides students with an array of benefits, including specialized mini-seminars, exposes students to the wide variety of careers available in rural communities for individuals with a legal education, and is designed to provide for experiential learning (mentoring opportunities, immersion trips, etc).

For participation in these enrichment activities, Kansas State pre-law students can earn a recognition certificate.

For more information, contact Aida Alakathe associate dean of the Washburn School of Law.
