This depends on which courses you take at Aims and which program of study you will be working on at the transfer college. It is important that you work closely with your advisor and check with the receiving institution to determine if certain courses will transfer. We do have transfer guides to help us determine if a course is likely to transfer. Please note that a grade of “C” or better must be achieved in courses to be considered for transfer credit.
These courses will transfer to the receiving institution as completing either a general education requirement or a degree requirement for students who transfer to a Liberal Arts major at a Colorado four-year public college. These courses are marked with the GT identifier in the Aims catalog (Ex., SS1, CO1, etc.). More information about state Guaranteed Transfer courses and GT Pathways may be found at http://highered.colorado.gov/Academics/Transfers/Students.html or by contacting an Aims advisor.
Absolutely. You will need to work closely with your Aims advisor as well as checking with the specific four-year institution about the acceptance of transfer credits before you enroll. Some majors require specific general education courses to be completed as part of your two-year degree in order to finish a four-year degree in a timely manner. Please see four-year transfer guides.

In order to have your transfer credits evaluated:
It is helpful to keep copies of academic records, such as course syllabi, course descriptions and special projects. You may use them to possibly document you have met the competencies for any denied transfer course.
