2024-2025 Catalog

Chemistry Transfer Major, A.S.

Program is designed for students transferring to a 4-year school to complete their BS degree in Chemistry. It allows students to complete the first 2 years of the BS degree at the community college. Students explore calculus, physics and chemistry. Careers often require a BS degree or higher. Chemistry is the study of the properties, structure, and change of matter. Students will explore atoms, chemical bonds and reactions, the way matter interacts, and the forces that give matter its properties. This program introduces students to Chemistry and it includes courses that are common to all four-year institutions in Colorado. Career paths for Chemistry degree holders include research, quality control, drug research, chemical engineering, and national defense. The Associate of Science (AS) degree in Chemistry prepares students to complete the second half of a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Chemistry at a four-year university.

Note 1:

This statewide transfer articulation agreement in Chemistry does not fulfill requirements for the gtPathways general education curriculum or the Associate of Science degree prior to transfer; however, this agreement does guarantee a student, if admitted, junior standing and completion of the baccalaureate degree within an additional 60 semester hours at the receiving institution.

Note 2:

Completion of the receiving institution’s lower division general education requirements is fulfilled only under the condition that one gtPathways-approved course in arts and humanities (AH1, AH2, AH3, or AH4) and one gtPathways-approved course in social and behavioral sciences (SS1, SS2, or SS3) are successfully completed at the receiving institution within the first 30 hours or 12 calendar months.

Note 3:

Students transferring to a 4-yr college/university under this Chemistry agreement are encouraged to ‘reverse’ transfer the one gtPathways course in arts and humanities and the one gtPathways course in social and behavioral sciences (Note #2 above) back to their community college in order to complete the gtPathways general education program and to earn their Associate of Science degree with a Chemistry designation.
