Guaranteed Transfer and Guided Pathways

To help you avoid taking unnecessary courses and earn your degree in as little time as possible, Colorado has developed a general education curriculum (gtPathways) that forms the core of most bachelor's degrees and is guaranteed to transfer between all public colleges and universities.

Colorado also has developed Statewide Articulation Agreements (Degrees with Designation) that allow you to graduate from a Colorado community college with a 60-credit associate's degree with designation, such as an Associate's of Arts in Economics; enroll with junior status at a four-year university; and complete the bachelor's degree in that major in no more than an additional 60 credits (for a total of 120 credits).

For full information about the gtPathways and the State-wide Transfer Articulation Agreements (Degrees with Designation) please visit the Colorado Guaranteed Transfer website.

Listed below are Institutional Transfer Guides for Arts & Sciences majors at CU Boulder that DO NOT have a State-wide Transfer Articulation Agreement.  Some of these guides require that you transfer to CU Boulder before you earn an Associate's degree from a community college and often require very careful planning to transfer successfully to CU Boulder.  So, read the guides carefully.
