gtPathways – Guaranteed Course Transfers

gtPATHWAYS is a set of general education courses that the state guarantees to transfer. Receiving institutions shall apply guaranteed general education courses to a student’s general education or major requirements. Approved courses in gtPATHWAYS are not based on course equivalencies but meet content and competency criteria.

All state community colleges (CCCS), along with Aims Community College and Colorado Mountain College, share common general education core course numbers, prefixes and title. Wherever “CCCS” appears next to a course on the lists of approved gtPATHWAYS courses, the designated course (e.g., CCCS BIO III) is approved for all community colleges that offer the course.
