Pathways Information for KCTCS Students

In November 2012, University of the Cumberlands and Somerset KCTCS entered into an agreement for business administration students.  This agreement provides for a seamless pathway for students completing the Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Administration at Somerset KCTCS to move towards completion of the Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration through the Hutton School of Business at University of the Cumberlands.

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

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

  • General education – 37 hours
  • Business Administration major – 54 hours
  • General electives – 37 hours

Specific degree requirements are accessible at the following link:

As a part of the requirements for the Bachelor’s degree, a minimum of 36 semester hours numbered 300 or above are required for graduation.  Students transferring to University of the Cumberlands under this agreement can transfer up to 12 hours of 200-level credit courses to be applied towards the 300-level business administration courses at UC.  While these courses apply to the Business Administration core, they will not be counted as 300/400 level coursework. 

The academic advisor assigned to the student at the time of their admission to the Business 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 Business Administration are offered in an online format to accommodate the needs of today’s working adult.
