OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - Faculty from state universities, community colleges and technical colleges in Kansas are meeting to review courses as part of an effort to make sure students can transfer some credits among all institutions.

Nearly 300 people were registered to attend Friday’s annual Kansas Core Outcomes Group Project conference at Johnson County Community College.

The project is coordinated by the state Board of Regents. Faculty members review course materials and set common outcomes across institutions, so that the transfer of credits is then guaranteed for students.

The conference then recommends courses to add to the board’s list for guaranteed credit transfers, with the regents making the final decision.

There are 46 courses on the list, and 11 others are under consideration.
