Bachelor of Arts Degrees


The Bachelor of Arts degree program offers a liberal arts education that includes the Colorado State Guaranteed General Education Curriculum. This curriculum includes 31 credits minimum of general education classes across five content areas, plus 3 credits of communication. These are the same basic general education requirements in our Associate of Arts  degree program at Colorado Mountain College. Some specific degree programs may have additional general education requirements (consult an adviser or the catalog for more information).


The Bachelor of Arts degree is designed to offer a variety of students from diverse backgrounds and academic interests the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree. Students who have earned their associate’s degree at CMC, or other community colleges in Colorado, will have an easier pathway to complete their bachelor’s degree program because they will have already met several degree requirements such as the speech communications requirement and certain general education prerequisites that are important for student success.


There are two admission opportunities for pursing a bachelor’s degree at Colorado Mountain College.  Enroll as a freshman and complete an associate’s degree (AA, AS, AGS, or AAS) as part of your bachelor’s degree and you will have completed your first two years.  As a transfer student, submit official college transcripts from your previous schools and enroll with advanced standing.  In order to be eligible to register for 300 and 400-level classes you must have, 1) completed 45 credit hours (at CMC or in transfer), and 2) have a 2.3 cumulative grade point average.


The prerequisite pathway under the 2013/14 catalog for the Bachelor of Arts degree includes these elements: 1) a college degree from an accredited institution before a student can enroll in more than 15 upper-division credits at CMC; 2) course prerequisites must be completed before a student can enroll in upper-division courses; 3) for transfer credit, upper-division course requirements must be earned through an accredited four-year program as upper-division coursework; 4) if an approved emphasis area or concentration is pursued, all requirements for that emphasis or concentration must be completed prior to awarding the degree; and 5) specific courses that fulfill the general education requirements may be stipulated by the specific bachelor’s degree program. Students are encouraged to seek advising on meeting course prerequisites and other degree requirements.

Bachelor of Arts Degree Requirements

The Bachelor of Arts degree requires taking at least 120 credits from among general education courses and specific core degree requirements and program electives as per the Colorado Department of Higher Education guidelines. Students who have earned an AA or AS degree and earned a C or better in all courses shall be fully considered for admission into the BA program.  Under the state transfer guidelines for AA and AS degrees, if offered admission, you will enter with a junior standing and will be required to take 60 more credits to earn your bachelor’s degree. (Students matriculating from an AGS or AAS program will probably need more than 60 credits to earn a bachelor’s degree.) Students who do not fully complete AA or AS degree requirements will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis and may lose transfer credits depending on their previous course of studies. Therefore, students from other colleges are best advised to complete their associate’s degree from their home institution. Individual courses may transfer and count towards specific degree requirements for a four-year degree, but the transferable courses are limited to the course equivalents of the courses specified in the curriculum of the four-year degree program. 

To graduate, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (“C” average) or “P” (passing) or better on all courses taken at Colorado Mountain College. At least 80 percent of the semester credits applied toward graduation must be letter graded.

See the section on scholarships  for opportunities related to earning bachelor’s degrees. The Bachelor of Arts degree is offered throughout the CMC district but not every course is offered on every campus. Check the campus schedule of classes to find appropriate course offerings.
