Pathways Information for KCTCS Students

University of the Cumberlands and Somerset KCTCS have entered into an agreement for Elementary Education students. This agreement provides for a seamless pathway for students completing the Associate of Applied Science degree in Educator Preparation at Somerset KCTCS to move towards completion of the Bachelor of Science degree in Education through the School of Education at University of the Cumberlands.

Under this pathway, students who have completed an Associate’s degree in Educator Preparation at KCTCS can transfer up to 80 hours of course credit to University of the Cumberlands.

The general requirement for graduation from University of the Cumberlands with the Bachelor of Science in Education is the completion of at least 128 semester hours including:

  • General education – 37 hours
  • Education major – 72 hours + emphasis area(s) Some of these hours are completed at the Community College level.

The academic advisor assigned to the student at the time of their admission to the Education Online Program will work with the student to develop a planned program that lists the courses completed/transferred and a list of courses to be completed.   As a part of this process, the academic advisor will also develop the planned program to ensure that a minimum of 36 semester hours numbered 300 or above are identified.  An approved copy of the planned program is forwarded to the student. 

All of the courses needed to complete the Bachelor of Science degree in Education are offered in an online format to accommodate the needs of today’s working adult.
