The Geography 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.
One GT Pathways course [MA1] is required - MAT 135 preferred. Except: Adams State University requires MAT 121; Metropolitan State University of Denver requires either MAT 135 or MAT121; University of Colorado Denver requires either MAT 121 or MAT 135; University of Colorado Colorado Springs prefers MAT 120.
The following courses are not currently offered at Aims, but they can be transferred from another Colorado community college or university and applied towards this degree:
GEO 111 Physical Geography (GT-SC1) - 4 credits
GEO 112 Physical Geography - Weather & Climate (GT-SC1) - 4 credits
Please note: If these credits are not required for the major at a receiving 4-year institution, they will be applied to the Bachelor’s degree as elective credit towards graduation. Please check with the receiving institution to determine in which way these courses will be applied.

A maximum of 6 credits may be in GEO or GIS subjects. The number of elective credits may vary according to the receiving institution. You are adivsed to contact an advisor at the receiving institution.
