The Economics Statewide Transfer Articulation Agreement is designed for the student who is planning to transfer to a participating public four-year Colorado college or university that offers this program within the minimum number of credits designated by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education.
Courses with a 3-character bracketed code (for example, “English Composition I [CO1]” ), in which a student earns the final grade of “C” or better are guaranteed to transfer to every public Colorado college or university. Although courses in which a “D” grade is earned may apply toward the AA degree at Aims, they are not guaranteed to transfer. Students may want to check with the next school they plan to attend in order to determine transferability, or may want to repeat those courses to receive a better grade.
Please carefully review the Colorado Department of Higher Education web site for participating institutions and any additional degree requirement details including important information in the PART TWO: LIMITATIONS section (CDHE Statewide Transfer Articulation Agreements/Degrees with Designation). Students should contact receiving institution for course transferability or additional requirements when selecting courses.
