The purpose of a statewide transfer articulation agreement is to identify the courses a student at a Colorado public community college must complete as part of an Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree to be guaranteed to be able to complete a bachelor’s degree program (B.A. or B.S.) at any public four-year college or university that offers that bachelor’s degree program.
