Transfer Coordination

Thinking about transferring to another college or four year program, Counseling and Career Planning Services can help. We can help you create steps to a successful transfer. Counseling and Career Planning Office has several transfer guides and college catalogs available to students

Steps to a Successful Transfer

  • Seek advice on transfer from your academic advisor or the Counseling and Career Planning Services during your first semester or as soon as possible after earning 15 credits.
  • Choose as early as possible the institution you wish to transfer to and your intended major.
  • Check the transferability of your course before registration and not after.
  • Map out your course work in accord with the recommended transfer program you and your advisor find.
  • Become familiar with Colorado’s regulations on General Education and transfer. These regulations are printed in every college’s catalogs and/or student handbook.
  • Determine transfer application and admissions procedures and deadlines of your intended transfer institution. Each institution sets its own deadlines for application, admissions, housing, financial aid and scholarships. So, the sooner you apply, the greater your options will be.
  • Be aware that courses and program requirements may change as colleges attempt to keep their program current. Please make sure you consult frequently with your advisor or Counseling and Career Planning office to see if changes have occurred in courses and program requirements of your intended program.

60/60 Transfer Agreement

If a student completes an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree, 60 credit hours of their A.A. or A.S. degree are guaranteed to transfer to a four-year school, once they are accepted for admission. And, they should be able to finish a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree within another *60 credit hours. This is called a 60 + 60 transfer plan. Here is of list of applicable degrees to the 60 + 60 agreement

Articulation Agreements

Articulation agreements are official agreements between all Colorado public colleges and universities. The agreements specify the courses taught at Community Colleges that the upper division college or university will accept. After meeting the academic standards set forth in the agreement, students apply to the bachelor's program to which they had planned to transfer. Participating in an articulation agreement for transfer to a college or university helps ensure that you won't have to retake successfully completed courses and earn additional credits to enter as a junior, once you transfer - unless, of course, you change your major or degree program.
