Baker University has partnered with Johnson County Community College to better assist students planning to continue their education.

The articulation agreement between Baker’s Baldwin City campus and the two-year college in Overland Park provides a systematic plan enabling students to transfer their JCCC credit hours to Baker.

While Baker welcomes applications for admission from any student, this agreement pertains to students who earn an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree with a cumulative grade-point average of 2.6 or higher on a 4.0 scale.

“We are proud of the partnership with Johnson County Community College,” Baker Provost Brian Posler said. “The agreement creates a better process for students planning to transfer to Baker’s Baldwin City campus. The students from Johnson County will know immediately which courses will transfer for credit at Baker and will be in a better position to graduate in four years.”

Students admitted via this agreement will have full access to all Baker support services, including admission and financial aid representatives, and academic advising.

Those students who transfer to Baker under the terms of this agreement will benefit from all privileges assigned to other students, including class-standing priority in residence hall selection, access to competitive programs, course registration and beyond.

Students interested in transferring to Baker should complete a Baker application for admission at
