Wichita State is Kansas’ top transfer destination for a 12th straight year

For the 12th straight year, Wichita State University is the most popular transfer
destination for students at Kansas community colleges.

Wichita State is working on extending that streak. Students who apply for admission
and submit official college transcripts by April 1 could receive a $6,000 transfer scholarship to utilize over two years of attendance.

“With resources like dual advising, the transfer gateway and plentiful internships in our community, transfer students who are looking for
clear paths toward their degrees will find what they need while wearing Shocker black
and yellow,” said Bobby Gandu, assistant vice president, strategic enrollment management.

According to the Kansas Board of Regents, 719 students transferred to Wichita State
in the fall 2021 (the most recent year for which data is available). That scale of
transfer intake is 15% higher than the next closest Kansas university.  

Wichita State is also the top destination for transfers from Butler, Hutchinson, Cowley,
Pratt, Garden City and Seward community colleges. Transfers from Kansas technical
colleges chose Wichita State more than all other schools in Kansas combined.

“We think it means students who are serious about moving on to a bachelor’s degree
know our university has the right collection of transfer practices in place to catapult
their educational and professional careers,” Gandu said.
