The purpose of the General Education curriculum is to enhance the breadth and depth of a Butler student’s specific program of study. By meeting the General Education course requirements, Butler students will have acquired pertinent knowledge and have developed invaluable skills in a broad range of academic areas which enable them to pursue a productive future in an increasingly complex and diverse global community.

Butler General Education Bucket Requirements

Beginning with the Fall 2024 term, all state universities, Washburn University, and all participating community colleges in Kansas use a common systemwide general education (SGE) framework within associate of arts (A.A), associate of science (A.S.) degrees, and all baccalaureate degrees.  The SGE framework includes 34-35 credit hours organized in 7 “buckets” identified by an individual SGE code. 

  • Bucket #1 (SGE010) English Discipline Area
    Two English courses
6 hours
  • Bucket #2 (SGE020) Communications Discipline Area
    One Communication course
3 hours
  • Bucket #3 (SGE030) Mathematics & Statistics Discipline Area
    One Mathematics or Statistics course
3 hours
  • Bucket #4 (SGE040) Natural & Physical Sciences Discipline Area
    One Lab Science course
4-5 hours
  • Bucket #5 (SGE050)Social & Behavioral Sciences Discipline Area
    6 hours in at least two courses from two differnt subjects
6 hours
  • Bucket #6 (SGE060) Arts & Humanities Discipline Area
    6 hours in at lest two courses from two different subjects
6 hours
  • Bucket #7 (SGE070) Institutionally Designted Area
    6 hours in at least two courses from two different areas
6 hours

Any student who has completed the full credit hour requirement in all buckets will be considered to have completed the Kansas SGE framework for A.A. and A.S. degrees. The completion of the 34-35 credit hour general education package will be noted on the student’s transcript.

Course Requirements for A.A. and A.S. degrees and the General Education Buckets:

  • All students are required to take EG101 and EG102 from Bucket 1.
  • All students are required to take either SP100 or SP102 from Bucket 2.
  • All students are required to take one math course from Bucket 3.
  • All other buckets where a course is marked as preferred, students can choose any course listed in the state approved bucket if they meet the prerequisite for the course. 
  • Courses in any of the buckets 3-7 not marked preferred are mandatory in the pathway unless an alternative is approved by the dean overseeing the pathway.
  • Courses listed in the Pathway not identified with a bucket are required for completion of the given degree pathway and are not intended to fulfill the state approved general education bucket package.

Students who are working toward associate of applied science (A.A.S.) or associate of general studies (A.G.S.) are not required to complete the 34-35 credit hour general education bucket system. Students pursuing these degrees will select from the general education bucket list of courses but will only complete 15 credit hours of general education for the A.A.S. or 25 credit hours of general education for the A.G.S.

General degree requirements for all Butler degrees and certificates are listed below. See program of study for specific course and GPA requirements.

  • General Education requirements
  • Major requirements
  • Minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0
  • Minimum Butler credits

The college requires an official transcript be sent from each institution for prior coursework to be used toward a degree program. In addition, certain students (VA, athletes, and select financial aid recipients) are required to provide all official transcripts to the Registrar’s Office. All official transcripts on file will be used in the determination of financial aid eligibility.

Electronic transcripts should be emailed using a secure electronic exchange from your high school, college, or other educational institution to registrar@butlercc.edu. Transcripts emailed from the student are not considered official and will be used for advising purposes only.

Butler accepts transfer hours from institutions regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission or regional accreditations accepted by the U.S. Department of Education. Butler only reviews and transcripts transfer credit for students enrolled in degree programs. Transcripts for students who are non-degree seeking are not reviewed, but may be used for advising purposes. International transcripts must be evaluated and translated by a member company of National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).

All accepted transfer hours will be included in the cumulative grade point average, whether or not the classes apply specifically to the degree or certificate being sought. Graduates with a combined (institutional and transfer) grade point averages of 3.75 and above are eligible for membership in Order of the Purple. To further qualify for Order of the Gold, graduates must have a combined (institutional and transfer) 4.0 grade point average. These hours are calculated to include the semester of graduation.

Both honors are based on the student’s qualifying grade point average (see above), and a minimum of 30 resident Butler hours earned in college level coursework at the time of graduation.

If eligibility occurs after final semester grades are included, honors are posted to student’s transcript and the award sent at that time.

Articulation and Transfer

What is an articulation (transfer) agreement?

An articulation agreement is a “contract” drawn up between a community college and either a high school or a college/university involving faculty, counselors/advisors, administrators and appropriate personnel at both schools. This “contract” consists of aligning and transferring equivalent and prescribed courses applicable to a specific program from the high school to the community college or from the community college to the college or university. The student is ensured that all of the named courses will transfer. Often these agreements will be specialized to include a 2 +2 agreement, consisting of two years at Butler and two years at the transfer-college or university to complete the bachelor degree.

A student who completes an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree based on a baccalaureate oriented sequence at a state and regionally accredited Kansas public community college and whose program of studies has met requirements of the Kansas Public Community College-Kansas Regents Transfer Agreement and Articulation Guide, will be accepted with junior standing and will have satisfied the general education requirements of all Regents universities. Students transferring to Regents institutions who have not completed an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree will be given general education credit for any articulation general education course completed at the community college.

Kansas Board of Regents Transfer and Articulation

The Kansas Board of Regents maintains a Kansas common course portal on its website for all courses that transfer as equivalent across all public colleges and universities within the state. From the main webpage at www.kansasregents.org, you can find common course information using the Transfer Kansas Portal link. In this catalog, approved courses are identified with the KRSN in parentheses at the end of the course description.

Butler’s Current Career Pathways Articulation Agreements

Butler is pleased to partner with the Kansas State Department of Education in support of the Career Pathways initiative. Program articulation agreements have been established to provide high school students with a sequence of coursework leading to a college degree or certificate.

For students to receive credit through these agreements, the following is required: 1) the student’s high school must have a signed, current articulation agreement on file with Butler in the subject area, 2) the student must complete an articulation application form, 3) the student must maintain a C or better in the specified high school course and 4) the student must complete 12 credit hours with Butler before applying for articulated credit. Articulation credit will be posted as “CR” credit.

Developmental Coursework Policy (rev. 3/31/21)

The Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) policy and procedure manual states the following regarding HS concurrent enrollment: “Remedial/developmental course work or course work that does not apply to a Regents’ approved degree program at the post secondary partner institution in a CEP agreement is not considered appropriate for college-level credit or eligible for financial reimbursement” (Ch IV, 8 (3) v). Based on this policy, high school students may take developmental courses online or on a Butler campus, but dual credit will not be awarded. High school students include those enrolled in public and private institutions and those in home school.
