INTRODUCTIONA statewide transfer articulation agreement identifies the community college courses students need totake in order to graduate from a community college with a 60-credit Associate of Arts (AA) orAssociate of Science (AS) degree with designation (DwD). Students are responsible for informing theadmissions counselor or intake advisor at their receiving four-year institution that they are completinga DwD.It is important for students to understand that completion of an AA or AS degree within two yearsrequires them to complete an average of 15 credits per semester (or 30 credits per year). Also,research shows that students who take classes in their major area within their first 30 credit hours aremore likely to persist and graduate.The guarantees and limitations below describe the minimum requirements to which all participatinginstitutions have agreed. Students who believe an institution is not meeting the guarantees describedbelow can file a complaint at .PART ONE: GUARANTEESStudents who complete a DwD pursuant to the prescribed curriculum in this statewide transferarticulation agreement and pass all 60 credits with a C- or higher and are admitted to the receivinginstitution’s corresponding degree program (see cover page) are guaranteed the following:1. Junior standing with no more than 60 remaining credits to meet the graduation requirementsfor the baccalaureate degree program covered by this articulation agreement (see coverpage).2. Completion of the receiving institution’s lower division general education requirements asdefined by the GT Pathways curriculum.3. The same graduation requirements as students who begin and complete this degree programat the four-year institution.4. Beginning fall 2019, admission to all Colorado public baccalaureate awarding institutions(except Colorado School of Mines) will be guaranteed to applicants who have completed anyAA or AS degree from a Colorado public two-year institution after high school graduation,provided certain requirements are met. To see these requirements, please refer to theColorado Commission on Higher Education’s Admissions Standards Policy (effective forstudents seeking admission for fall 2019 and after), Section titled “Guaranteed TransferAdmissions” at s/Current/i-partf-fall-2019.pdf.Please note: Students transferring to a University of Colorado institution (Boulder, ColoradoSprings, Denver) must satisfy the CU System’s MAPS (Minimum Academic PreparationStandards) requirement.FINAL Statewide Transfer Articulation AgreementRevised: October 2019ART HISTORYPage 2 of 6

5. Per the Commission’s Prior Learning Assessment policy, section 2.07 icies/Current/i-partx.pdf), and pursuant toColorado Revised Statutes §23-1-108 (7)(b)(II)(A), “a state institution of higher education thatadmits as a junior a student who holds an associate of arts degree, associate of appliedscience degree, or associate of science degree that is the subject of a statewide degreetransfer agreement shall not require the student to complete any additional courses to fulfillgeneral education requirements”, and that the receiving institution of higher education isresponsible for the total cost of tuition “for any credit hours that exceed the total credit hoursrequired for a native student or that extend the total time to receive the degree beyond thatrequired for a native student”.6. The Commission’s Prior Learning Assessment policy also states “every Colorado publicinstitution of higher education shall accept in transfer from within the institution and from otherstate institutions of higher education prior learning assessment credit awarded for GTPathways requirements” (section 3.01), and “Colorado public institutions of higher educationshall not prohibit students from meeting general education/GT Pathways requirements withprior learning assessment credit“ (section 3.02).PART TWO: LIMITATIONS1. Until the Commission’s new Admissions Policy takes effect fall 2019, completion of theprescribed curriculum in this statewide transfer articulation agreement does not guaranteeadmission to a participating receiving institution. Students must meet all admission andapplication requirements at the receiving institution including the submission of all requireddocumentation by stated deadlines.2. Only courses with grades of C- or higher are guaranteed to transfer.3. Admission to a receiving institution does not guarantee enrollment in a specific degreeprogram. Some programs at receiving institutions have controlled entry due either to spacelimitations or academic requirements.4. The credit and course transfer guarantees described in this agreement apply to the specificdegree programs covered by this agreement (see cover page). If the student changes majors,receiving institutions will evaluate application of the courses designated in this agreement toother degree programs on a course-by-course basis.5. Students are allowed to use credits awarded by exam, such as AP (Advanced Placement) andIB (International Baccalaureate), as long as those exams are listed on the exam tables fers/GetCredit.html, or may use challengeexams to fulfill GT Pathways requirements (not necessarily major requirements) and thosecredits are guaranteed to transfer and apply to GT Pathways requirements at the receivinginstitution per the Colorado Commission on Higher Education’s Policy I, X: Prior LearningFINAL Statewide Transfer Articulation AgreementRevised: October 2019ART HISTORYPage 3 of 6

Assessment. See the entire policy for more ions/Policies/Current/i-partx.pdf.6. The receiving institution shall accept all applicable credits earned within ten years of transfer tothe receiving institution. Credits earned more than ten years earlier will be evaluated on acourse-by-course basis.7. All the courses a student needs to take in the associate degree program covered by thisstatewide transfer articulation agreement are listed in the prescribed curriculum. Coursesubstitutions are allowed as long as the student and sending and receiving institutions agree tothe substitution; such agreement should be documented in writing and the student should keepa copy until the baccalaureate degree is conferred. Note that if students substitute a course,then this is no longer a statewide agreement and some of the guarantees are only for thereceiving institution that agreed to the substitution. Any additional courses taken in thediscipline covered by this agreement might not count toward the requirements of themajor at the receiving institution. Students can avoid this problem by either taking no morecourses in the discipline than the ones identified in the prescribed curriculum or by consultingfirst with the receiving institution to assure that any additional courses they take in thediscipline will count toward the major.8. Students seeking K-12 teacher licensure may not use this agreement because teacherpreparation programs have different requirements for educator licensure.Because of the limitations above, students must consult with the Office of Admissions at theinstitution to which they are transferring.FINAL Statewide Transfer Articulation AgreementRevised: October 2019ART HISTORYPage 4 of 6
