University partners with Independence Community College to assist students continuing their education

Baldwin City, Kan. — Baker University’s College of Arts and Sciences has partnered with Independence Community College on an articulation agreement to better assist students planning to continue their education.

The agreement between Baker’s College of Arts and Sciences and the two-year college in southeast Kansas is designed to improve the transition process for students, enabling them to transfer their credit hours from Independence to Baker. While Baker welcomes applications for admission from any student, the agreement pertains to students who earn an Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree at Independence.

“The partnership with Independence Community College provides students the opportunity to transfer more of their credits while enrolling at Baker University,” said Mark Bandre, vice president for enrollment management and student development. “This agreement helps create more opportunities for students as they become more aware of Baker’s degree and major offerings.”
