Archive of Transfer Guides
Curricular innovations occasionally require updates to the listed courses in Transfer Guides. When that occurs, Transfer Guides that were previously published but are no longer in effect are moved to this Archive. Outdated Transfer Guides that have been moved to this Archive will continue to be honored for 2 calendar years after their end date.
All end dates for a Transfer Guide will be in the summer semester. The 2-year period for which guides will be honored includes students that start in the fall semester after the 2 years has elapsed. (i.e. A guide that ended in Summer 2010 would have been honored for students that started their first course at CSU by the Fall 2012 semester). Students must transfer with an AA/AS completed at a Colorado Community College and have completed all the coursework identified on the guide in order for the guarantee of a minimum number of credits for completion of the degree program to be honored.
Students who have been following an outdated Transfer Guide and begin courses at CSU after the 2-year period has elapsed will not be guaranteed that they can finish that major in the minimum number of credits established for the program. For questions or concerns please contact the Degree and Transfer Evaluation unit at 970-491-7159.
