The Associate of Arts degree includes several options selected from courses listed below. By completing your AA degree requirements before transferring to a public four-year institution in Colorado, 60 credits are guaranteed to transfer once you are accepted for admission. Liberal arts majors will be able to finish a BA degree with 60 additional credits at the transfer institution. This is called a 60 + 60 transfer plan.
If you do not finish the full 60-credit AA degree then non-state guaranteed general education courses (✽ courses) may transfer on a course-by-course basis. This decision is at the discretion of the receiving institution; please see your advisor. If you change your major between two liberal arts programs, the same general education guarantee applies; however, students who change their major after the first 60 hours accept the responsibility that this decision may require additional courses. This will help you avoid any confusion or disappointment as you work toward completing your degree.
