Arapahoe Community College

2014-2015 Catalog

Associate of Arts in French

The purpose of a statewide articulation agreement is to identify the courses a student at a Colorado public community college must complete as part of an AA/AS degree to be guaranteed to be able to complete the designated baccalaureate degree program at any public four-year college and university (hereafter referred to as receiving institutions) that offers that program within the minimum number of credits designated by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education.

The guarantees and limitations below describe the minimum requirements to which all participating institutions have agreed.

Students who complete an AA/AS degree and the prescribed curriculum in the articulation agreement and are admitted (with no academic deficiencies that require additional coursework) to a receiving institution participating in this agreement are guaranteed the following:

  • Junior standing with no more than 60 [note: this number may vary with specific program covered by agreement] remaining credits to meet the graduation requirements for a baccalaureate degree in the degree program covered by this articulation agreement.
  • Completion of the receiving institution’s lower division general education requirements as defined by the gtPathways (GT) curriculum
  • The same graduation requirements as students who begin and complete this degree program at the receiving institution.
  • Completion of the curriculum prescribed within this statewide articulation agreement does not guarantee admission to a participating receiving institution. Students must meet all admission and application requirements at the receiving institution including the submission of all required documentation by stated deadlines.
  • Only courses with grades of C- or higher are guaranteed to transfer.
  • Admission to a receiving institution does not guarantee enrollment in a specific degree program. Some programs at receiving institutions have controlled entry due either to space limitations or academic requirements.
  • The credit and course transfer guarantees described in this agreement apply to the specific degree program covered by this agreement. Receiving institutions will evaluate application of the courses designated in this agreement to other degree programs on a course-by-course basis.
  • Students who wish to use credits awarded by exam, such as AP (Advanced Placement), or IB (International Baccalaureate), to fulfill specific course requirements are responsible for consulting with the institution to which they are considering transferring to determine whether the credits they have been awarded by exam meet the standards of the receiving institution for specific course equivalents. 
  • The receiving institution will accept all applicable credits earned within ten years of transfer to the receiving institution. Credits earned more than ten years earlier will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis.

Because of the limitations above, students must consult with the Office of Admissions at the institution to which they are considering transferring.

Successful completion of an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree with academic designation does not guarantee the degree holder admission to a four-year state-supported institution of higher education; nor does it guarantee the degree holder automatic transfer of credits unless the degree holder has fulfilled the requirements of an existing statewide transfer agreement associated with the degree. No course substitutions will be accepted for the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees.
