On behalf of our many students who wish to pursue advanced degrees, the Colorado Community College System is pleased to provide these and other transfer agreements with four-year institutions.
The Colorado Department of Higher Education has negotiated Articulation and Transfer Agreements to facilitate the transfer of credits earned at Colorado Community Colleges to bachelor degree completion programs at all public colleges and universities. These agreements list specific policies, conditions and guidelines to assist with your transfer. The agreements also provide the curriculum pathway for Colorado Community College students who complete an Associate Degree to enter a specific college and major at the junior level, and lessen the time to degree.
The agreements specify the courses taught at Colorado Community Colleges that a four-year upper division college or university will accept. Because institutions independently determine the requirements for their programs, articulation agreements differ from program to program and from college to college. After meeting the academic standards set forth in the agreement, students can apply to the bachelor’s program of choice.
Articulation agreements for transfer to a college or university help ensure that you won’t have to retake successfully completed courses or earn additional credits to enter as a junior, unless you change your major or degree program.
