Butler General Education Bucket Requirements (34-35)

Butler Community College participates in the Kansas systemwide general education (SGE) framework within AA and AS degrees.  The SGE framework includes 34-35 credit hours organized in 7 “buckets” each identified by an individual SGE code.  

  • 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 are encouraged to contact Academic Advising for further information.
