Transfer Policies

Colorado State University-Pueblo transfers credit from other regionally accredited universities or colleges. Academic departments will determine how transferred courses apply to your degree. Development and remedial courses will not transfer. Courses that have not been approved for transfer can be petitioned with approval of the academic department.

No more than 60 credit hours may be transferred from community colleges. No more than 90 credit hours may be transferred from another four-year college or university. Courses corresponding to a Colorado State University-Pueblo program of study will transfer. Courses must have a grade of C- or better to be accepted in transfer. A maximum of 90 credit hours may be applied to your degree at Colorado State University-Pueblo. A minimum of 30 semester hours toward your degree must be completed at Colorado State University-Pueblo.

After a transfer student has been formally admitted to Colorado State University-Pueblo with official transcripts from every college or university previously attended, he or she will receive an official evaluation of transfer credit. The evaluation will be completed in DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System) and will include all courses taken at other institutions and whether or not they were accepted for transfer credit. The DARS Evaluation also provides the basis for a degree completion plan at Colorado State University-Pueblo.

Many transfer policies are determined by the Colorado Department of Higher Education. The Colorado Department of Higher Education webpage will describe these policies, as well as information regarding guaranteed transfer general education courses, transfer degrees & guided pathways, and credit for prior learning. In addition, the Colorado Department of Higher Education allows students to file complaints here.
