The transfer process to engineering is easier than ever. 
Take the next step and continue on your path to an amazing career.

Students who begin at Red Rocks Community College (Lakewood or Arvada campus) can transfer directly to CU Boulder to finish their degree in engineering. Thanks to an integrated partnership, this pathway can be attractive to both community college students, as well as qualified high school students taking concurrent enrollment classes with RRCC. 

CU Boulder Engineering and Red Rocks Community College have designed this pathway to support a more streamlined transition between colleges and give you a detailed view of what your academic plan will look like. At RRCC, you can complete classes before transferring to CU Boulder and have the peace of mind that your credits will apply directly to your engineering degree.  

Additionally, EGT 140 – IDEA: Introduction to Design and Engineering Applications, transfers directly to CU Engineering as Engineering Projects (GEEN 1400) and is a unique and hands-on course that cultivates an understanding of the differences in engineering disciplines while working in interdisciplinary teams.

Transfer Advising Guides by Major

The following guides articulate specific courses that will transfer to CU Boulder from Red Rocks Community College and each guide will provide a 5-year plan, by major. These plans can be shortened to four years, by starting directly in Calculus 1, or making up classes in the summer, as well as being directly admitted to CU Engineering. Be sure to work with your academic advisor, as these are only meant to act as a sample pathway and can vary, based on each individual student.
