Designated Transfer Degrees

Graduate with one of our designated degrees, and all credits will transfer to the school of your choice, and guarantee you junior status.

Planning On Advancing To A Four-Year College?

If your goal is to pursue a bachelor’s degree upon completion of your studies at RRCC, our DESIGNATED TRANSFER DEGREES might be for you.
Graduate with one of our twenty-four designated degrees, and all credits will transfer and guarantee you junior status to specific Colorado public institutions of higher education if program GPA requirements are met.

Designated Degrees were created through the Statewide Transfer Articulation Agreement, an agreement among Colorado community colleges and Colorado universities.

How It Works

This agreement allows you to graduate from RRCC with a 60-credit Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree with designation; enroll with junior status at a university if program GPA requirements are met; and complete a Bachelor’s Degree in the designated field in no more than an additional 60 credits (for a total of 120 credits). If you attend full-time (15 credits per semester) and follow the structured schedule, you can complete your bachelor’s degree in 4 years.
