Arapahoe Community College

2014-2015 Catalog

Your A.A. or A.S. Degree May Transfer to all Colorado Public 4-Year Colleges and Universities

The agreement among Colorado public colleges and universities guarantees that when you complete your A.A. or A.S. degree with at least 60 credit hours of gtPathways (GT – Guaranteed Transfer) coursework and a grade of "C" or better in every course, your work will transfer to Colorado public colleges and universities.

If you complete the appropriate courses for your major, you may be able to finish your bachelor’s degree in an additional 60 credits. The A.A./A.S. transfer agreement applies to courses completed at ACC; the transfer of credits from private, non-accredited, out-of-state institutions or the awarding of credit from non-credit bearing courses, or courses that are over 10 years old, or credit earned for prior learning, Advanced Placement, correspondence courses, CLEP and other tested-only credit, may transfer to the four-year school, but are not guaranteed to transfer. The institution you wish to transfer to will evaluate these credits according to its own policies; contact the four-year institution for more information. To finish within two years at Arapahoe Community College depends on the number of credits you take each semester, the course sequencing in your major and course availability.

This agreement does not apply to Nursing, Teacher Education or Engineering. These majors have statewide articulations with specific lower division requirements.

Numerous new Statewide Articulation Agreements exist, which will allow A.A. and A.S. students at ACC to pursue focused study in such areas as Anthropology, Business, Criminal Justice, Early Childhood Teacher Education, Economics, Elementary Teacher Education, French, History, Mathematics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Spanish. Students who complete the prescribed curriculum and graduate from one of these A.A. or A.S. degrees of designation at ACC are guaranteed to be able to complete the designated baccalaureate degree program at any public four-year college and university that offers that program within the minimum number of credits designated by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education at http://highered.colorado.gov/Academics/Transfers/Students.html. Certain limitations and restrictions apply; contact the Advising Office for more information.

Save time by seeing your Transfer Advisor as soon as possible for "transfer guides." The guides will show you which lower division courses are required for articulation programs. They will also show which lower division courses are best suited for your intended major and you can be sure to complete the prerequisites for sequenced coursework before transferring to a four-year school.
