Apply College Credit to Your Degree

Kansas City Southern and Baker University have developed a unique partnership that allows employees an opportunity to earn college credit for approved KCS training courses.

If you’ve taken TRAX Learning courses or other KCS training in the past, follow the steps below to register and have those courses placed on a Baker University transcript. They may still be eligible for credit.
