Less College Hours Required To Graduate

KSCB News - October 22, 2010 12:00 am

It will take a little less time and money to

graduate from universities in Kansas.

The Kansas Board of Regents on Thursday approved decreasing the

minimum number of credit hours required for a bachelor’s degree

from 124 to 120.

The change takes effect immediately.

The regents staff noted that 39 states, including all those

bordering Kansas, have a 120-hour minimum.

A staff memo supporting the reduction says that many students

change universities during their college studies, making it

important to have consistent degree requirements.
