Associate of Arts Degree
This Associate of Arts degree with a designation in Criminal Justice meets the requirements for the Criminal Justice Statewide Transfer Articulation Agreement, and is designed for the student who is planning to transfer to UNC or 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.
Please view the Colorado Department of Higher Education web site for participating institutions and any additional degree requirement details (CDHE Statewide Transfer Articulation Agreements/Degrees with Designation). Students should contact receiving institution for course transferability or additional requirements when selecting courses.
Not all out-of-state transfer work is guaranteed to transfer to a Colorado 4-year school, even if accepted towards your degree at Aims CC, as all institutions conduct their own review of transfer courses. It is the student’s responsibility to work with the 4-year school to determine which courses will transfer. If any credits do not transfer, it could mean that more than 60 credits will be required to complete the 4-year degree.
