This program is designed for students who wish to transfer to a school of economics at a public institution in Colorado.
The Colorado Statewide Economics Articulation Agreement ensures that a student who completes the degree requirements for an Associate of Arts degree with an emphasis in Economics and earned a C- or better in all courses shall be fully considered for admission into the economics programs offered by the participating four-year public colleges in Colorado. Under this agreement, if offered admission, you will enter with a junior standing in the school of economics, and will only be required to take 60 more credits to earn your bachelor’s degree. Students who do not fully complete the AA Economics degree requirements will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Individual economics courses may transfer and count toward the graduation requirements for a four-year business degree, but the transferable courses are limited to the course equivalents of the courses specified in the curricula of the four-year economics degree programs.
The general education requirements for economics students are specific to this statewide business articulation agreement. Completion of these general education requirements may not satisfy all the general education requirements for every economics program. Students should review the economics degree requirements of the four-year college or university of their interest when making plans to transfer.
See the section on Scholarships and Awards for scholarship opportunities related to this program. The Associate of Arts: Economics Emphasis degree is offered at all locations. Not every course is offered on every campus.
