gtPathways General Education Curriculum

gtPathways courses, in which the student earned a C- or higher, will always transfer and the credit will apply to gtPathways requirements in every Liberal Arts & Sciences bachelor’s degree at every public Colorado institution. Depending on the bachelor’s degree, gtPathways course credit may also be applied to major and elective requirements at the receiving institution’s discretion. Students should note that some bachelor’s degrees do not contain the gtPathways curriculum in whole or in part (click here for a list of those degrees). If the bachelor’s degree you intend to complete does not contain the gtPathways curriculum, and the academic advisor indicates that none or few gtPathways courses will apply to the degree requirements, then you should be advised that, although all coursework will transfer, it may not apply so it won’t get you closer to completing the bachelor’s degree. Early transfer into the bachelor’s degree may be a good option in these instances. It is also important to note that if credit is awarded for a gtPathways course because of the score you got on an AP, CLEP or similar test, the institution to which you transfer may not accept the credit. You should always seek advising from the appropriate advisor at the college or university you plan to attend to ensure you are selecting the appropriate coursework for your degree and to ensure its transferability.
