Quick Reference Guide

(Note: Some people contact the Transfer Services when they are planning to transfer *to* Gateway from another school. These individuals should be referred to Admissions.)

Students who complete the 33 hour general education core (the top section of the AA/AS advising sheet) and transfer to any public four-year college in Kentucky (i.e. UK, UofL, Morehead, WKU, etc.) will be considered done with general education requirements. However, students still have to fulfill major requirements which are included as general education courses at the four year schools. For instance, a student can take COM 252 at Gateway instead of COM 181 to complete the Oral Communications requirement. If they finish their core and transfer to NKU – where most majors require public speaking as a major requirement, the student would be considered gen ed certified, but they would still need to take NKU’s public speaking course for their major.)
