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. 

  • Courses within any Degree with Designation must be completed with a grade of “C” or higher.
  • Courses older than 10 years cannot count towards any Degree with Designation.
  • Course substitutions and/or waivers are not permitted for any Degree with Designation.

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.
