1. Will my Butler credits transfer to other schools? The quick answer to this question is, "yes! " Butler is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and the Kansas State Board of Education. However, there are several other considerations which come into play in transferring credits to other schools.
The bottom line is that it is very important for students transferring from Butler to another college or university to make the decision as to his/her major and transfer school early and then consult with advisors at both schools in order to select courses which will be both transferable and countable for his major.
2. Do I have to get an associate degree before transferring? No. However, there are several reasons why you may wish to complete your associate degree. First, four-year colleges and universities will accept you as a junior and may waive additional general education requirements (see note above regarding the Articulation Agreement). Second, an associate degree shows employers that you've met a set of requirements toward a specific degree plan and haven't merely taken random courses. Third, obtaining your associate degree can give you a feeling of accomplishment and the sense that you are halfway to obtaining a bachelor's degree!
