One of the great things about higher education in Colorado is the “guaranteed transfer” program, by which the general education curriculum core classes that form the foundation of most bachelor’s degrees can be transferred between institutions, including credits from community colleges. This program can save you both time and money. According to the Colorado Department of Higher Education,
To help you avoid taking unnecessary courses and earn your degree in as little time as possible, Colorado has developed a general education curriculum that forms the core of most bachelor’s degrees and is guaranteed to transfer between all public colleges and universities. Colorado has also developed guided degree pathways to eliminate the guesswork of which courses to take. You should always seek advising from the appropriate advisor at the college or university you plan to attend to ensure you are selecting the appropriate coursework for your degree and to ensure its transferability.
