Preapproved Colorado Community College System (CCCS) Courses

Preapproved Colorado Community College System (CCCS) Courses


Colorado School of Mines is a signatory to the Colorado Statewide Engineering Articulation Agreement. Beginning with admissions in 2003-2004, this agreement determines transfer-ability of coursework for engineering students throughout the State of Colorado.

Numerous courses from the Colorado Community College System (CCCS) have been preapproved to transfer, provided a grade of “C” or higher has been earned.  If you are a currently enrolled Mines student intending to take a CCCS preapproved course, please have the appropriate CCCS school send an official transcript to after completion of the course(s).

No additional approval forms are necessary.  Please allow 2-3 weeks for the credit to post to your record at Mines after the official transcript has been received.


To view the preapproved courses, select from the categories below:


Note:  No credit will be granted for vocational courses (such as carpentry, medical assisting, etc.), or for developmental courses, including math and science courses below the level to be applicable to a Mines degree, such as pre-calculus or introductory chemistry.
