  • PCC, CSU-Pueblo announce new articulation agreements

    PCC President, Dr. Patty Erjavec, and CSU-Pueblo President, Timothy Mottet, sign new articulation agreements

    PUEBLO – The presidents of Pueblo Community College and Colorado State University-Pueblo today signed a series of articulation agreements that will benefit PCC students who want to transfer to CSU-Pueblo to complete a bachelor’s degree.

    The Colorado Department of Higher Education implemented Statewide Transfer Articulation Agreements in 2011. Those agreements remain in place among all of the state’s public two- and four-year institutions; however, in 2017 PCC President Patty Erjavec and CSU-Pueblo President Timothy Mottet decided to collaborate on more specific agreements for local students.

    Transfer guides were designed and approved between faculty at both campuses to provide accurate information to students for planning their educational paths. The disciplines cover a broad spectrum including art and humanities, communications, science and mathematics, health sciences, engineering, construction management, business, computers and cybersecurity, education and social sciences.

    The transfer guides will allow students who complete an associate degree at PCC to easily move on to CSU-Pueblo to obtain a bachelor’s degree in the same program.

    “There was great effort made on behalf of both institutions to ensure that the plans of study for nearly 60 programs were accurate and provide for a seamless, efficient pathway for transfer to Colorado State University-Pueblo,” Erjavec said. “This work will ultimately yield greater, affordable opportunities for student success.”

    “Today is another way of developing a set of systems that will ensure access and affordability to a group of students that we take great pride in serving – those are our underrepresented students,” said Mottet. “These are populations that both of our institutions serve and serve very well.”

    The transfer guides will be reviewed annually to ensure they remain current and the agreement between the schools will be reviewed every five years to ensure it continues to serve the schools and the communities of southern Colorado.
