Agreements with Four-Year Colleges and Universities

Use the tabs to the right to access Individual course transfer agreements, maintained by four-year colleges and universities, or course-by-course equivalencies for students transferring prior to completing the AA/AS degree. Many of our transfer partners provide advising guides that tell you exactly which courses to take a PPCC to best fit into their four-year degree programs.

Students wishing to transfer after completing AA/AS degrees should work closely with faculty advisors to follow best choices requirements or approved articulation agreements.

Additionally the Colorado Department of Higher Education maintains a list of statewide transfer agreements and information on the Colorado Guaranteed Transfer (gt Pathways) Program.
