Transfer Policies

At Colorado State University Pueblo, our priority is to provide a high-quality education to anyone who wants to further themselves — including those transferring to our school. We work diligently with all our incoming transfer students to get their credits from other regionally accredited universities or colleges transferred to CSU Pueblo to the best of our ability. 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.

Things To Know When Transferring Credits

  • It is at the discretion of the individual academic department to 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 the 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 CSU Pueblo program of study will transfer.
  • Courses must have a grade of C- or better to be accepted in transfer.

After You’ve Been Accepted

After a transfer student has been formally admitted to CSU Pueblo with official transcripts from every college or university previously attended, they 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 CSU Pueblo.
