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.

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
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

(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.

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
