​​CO STU​​DENT TRANSFER PLANNING​

 Statewide Articulation Agreements

The purpose of a statewide articulation agreement, also known as Degree with Designation (DWD), is to identify the courses a student must complete as part of an AA/AS degree at a Colorado Community College to be able to complete the design​ated baccalaureate degree program. 

The following majors have Statewide Articulation Agreement Transfer Guides  which apply to programs at CU Denver.

Elementary Teacher Education Programs   

There are several pathways that CU Denver undergraduates can take to become a licensed teacher in Colorado. The BA major in Education and Human Development (EDHD) is within the School of Education and Human Development (SEHD). The statewide agreements include two licensure areas— Early Childhood, and Elementary Education. 

Through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences pathway (CLAS), students choose a major from CLAS and earn their license in the SEHD. Secondary licensure and an Individually Structured Major (ISM) in elementary education are available through this CLAS partnership and is also included in the statewide agreement.

 CU Denver Institutional Colorado Community College Transfer Planning Guides

Below is the list of CU Denver majors that have transfer guides but do not have a statewide articulation agreement. The list of guides provide suggested coursework to complete at a Colorado community college that will prepare you to graduate with your bachelor’s degree. These guides are not likely to be completed within a 60 + 60 plan and may require you to transfer before completing an Associate’s degree.

 College Opportunity Fund (COF)

An act of the Colorado State Legislature in May 2004 established a new way for the State to provide state tax dollar support for higher education at the undergraduate level. The state is no longer appropriating monies to institutions for undergraduate education, but is providing direct funding to undergraduate students through COF.​​3

 gTPathways Curriculum

GT Pathways courses, in which the student earns a C- or higher, will always transfer and apply to GT Pathways requirements in AA, AS and most bachelor's degrees at every public Colorado college and university. A complete list of these courses can be found here: https://highered.colorado.gov/academics/transfers/gtpathways/curriculum.html

 Transferology

To make your transfer to CU Denver as easy as possible, the Transfer Admission Center (TAC) will be using Transferology – an online transfer planning resource. If you are interested in transferring credit (from a Colorado institution) to CU Denver, we encourage you to create a Transferology account. This resource allows you to view how your coursework may transfer and/or see how your transfer credit may apply to your desired degree program. Once you have been admitted to CU Denver, you will receive your official transfer credit evaluation within 10-12 business days.

​Out of State Transfer Planning

 Process

The process for out of state transfer is no different from our in-state process. We recommend working with your current and prospective academic advisor to identify what courses are equivalent to CU Denver. A full list of our programs and their graduation requirements can be found here: http://catalog.ucdenver.edu/content.php?catoid=22&navoid=6002 – simple find the classes required for your program and take the equivalent at your current school.​

 Transfer Credit Evaluation

If you would like a preliminary transfer credit evaluation of your previous credits, email transferadmissions@ucdenver.edu​ and include the following information:

  • First and Last Name

  • Mailing address

  • Birth Date

  • Name of institutions for all transcripts to be evaluated

  • Copy of each transcript

  • Major

A preliminary evaluation is meant to provide students with an initial understanding of what credits will transfer to CU Denver. This evaluation will not officially transfer credit to the University.​
