Colorado Guaranteed Transfer Pathways (GT Pathways) Overview:

GT Pathways is the state general education curriculum that applies to every AA/AS degree, and most BA/BS degrees, at Colorado’s public colleges and universities. Courses that are part of GT Pathways apply to the general education requirements at all public colleges and universities in Colorado and are guaranteed to transfer between institutions.


The GT Pathways General Education Curriculum consists of courses within the categories of written communication, Mathematics, Arts & Humanities, History, and Social & Behavioral Sciences, natural and physical sciences. GT Pathway courses must be completed with a C- or better and students can complete the curriculum in 31 credit hours.


The Colorado Department of Higher Education’s (CDHE) General Education (GE) Council, which includes members from all public Colorado colleges and universities, oversees the creation and maintenance of the GT Pathways curriculum as well Statewide Transfer Articulation Agreements.

The CU Denver representative on GE Council is Beth Myers, Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Planning and Institutional Effectiveness, with oversight of the Core Curriculum Oversight Committee (CCOC) which manages CU Denver’s General Education Core Curriculum.
