(Associate of Arts Degree)
Elementary Teacher Education Statewide Articulation Agreement includes courses for transfer to UNC and other Colorado universities.
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.
NOTE: The following transfer agreement was created prior to the 2010 legislation that changed the definition of a statewide transfer agreement and, therefore, no longer meets the legal definition. The schools that signed on to this agreement will honor it, however. Please check with Aims and the 4-year school you wish to transfer into to ensure you are registering for the appropriate courses.
