The program ensures easy transition for transfer students furthering their education as an associate degree from KCKCC will satisfy requirements for the first two years of a bachelor’s degree from Park.

“Park University has proudly served students throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area for the past 140 years,” said Interim President Jeff Ehrlich, Ed.D. “We are pleased to expand Park’s valuable, accessible and quality education experience to KCKCC students and the community by aligning both institutions’ core values and providing convenience throughout the entire educational journey of the student.”

Park University will offer five $2,000 scholarships each fiscal year, on a competitive basis, to participants in the 2 + 2 program. In addition, each recipient who remains in good academic standing will receive $1,000 at the beginning of his/her third and fourth year in the program.

“It is a pleasure to cement our relationship with Park University through the 2 + 2 partnership,” said KCKCC President Doris Givens, Ph.D. “Kansas City Kansas Community College takes great pride in saying that we are the most progressive, entrepreneurial community college in the state of Kansas and beyond, and we look forward to expanding the possibilities for our students through our partnership with Park University.”
