Accounting AA (ACC/CSU Pueblo 60+60 Plan) - Academic Plan


Total Credits = 60

The purpose of an institutional articulation agreement between Arapahoe Community College (ACC) and Colorado State University Pueblo (CSUP) 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.

This program was created as part of an agreement with Colorado State University Pueblo. Under the 60 + 60 plan, a student completes the AA Accounting degree at ACC, and then transfers to CSU Pueblo to complete the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) in Accounting at the ACC Sturm Collaboration Campus at Castle Rock.
