Pathways Information for KCTCS Students

University of the Cumberlands values and respects community college degrees. We want to recognize the dedication that community college students have demonstrated with their degree completion.

Under this pathway, UC will transfer your entire Accounting Degree Option from the Kentucky Community and Technical College  System.  We go above and beyond typical transfer agreements as we will transfer up to 92 credit hours from the community college system and we recognize your general education certification which means you will not be required to take additional general education courses at University of the Cumberlands.

The general requirements for graduation from University of the Cumberlands with the Bachelor of Science in Accounting is the completion of at least 128 semester hours including:          

  • General education - 37 hours
  • Accounting major - 60 hours
  • General electives  - 31 hours

Specific degree requirements are accessible on the degree requirements page.

As a part of the requirements for the Bachelor’s degree, a minimum of 36 semester hours numbered 300 or above are required for graduation.  As part of this agreement, several 200-level credit courses can be transferred and applied towards the 300-level business administration courses at UC.  While these courses apply to the core classes, they will not be counted as 300/400 level coursework. Students pursuing the Accounting major will be able to earn these hours as a part of completing the 33 hours needed.

The academic advisor assigned to the student at the time of their admission to the Accounting Online Program will work with the student to develop a planned program that lists the courses completed/transferred and a list of courses to be completed.   As a part of this process, the academic advisor will also develop the planned program to ensure that a minimum of 36 semester hours numbered 300 or above are identified.  An approved copy of the planned program is forwarded to the student.
