Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
This information is for faculty. A subset of our lower-division General Studies courses are in the state of Colorado’s Guaranteed Transfer (GT Pathways) program. This guarantees students who may transfer to another public Colorado institution that their course will count in the General Education program at that school. The state subdivides some of our broader General Studies categories, so your course will have a specific GT-Pathways category (e.g. GT-SS3). That category is listed in the course description in the catalog. The list of GT Pathways courses at MSU Denver can be found in the catalog. The state’s full collection of GT Pathways courses can be found on their webpage. While upper level courses are allowed in General Studies, GT Pathways courses should be 1000 or 2000 level courses with the exception of GT-CO3. Please contact Keah Schuenemann with questions. Keah can submit new courses for GT Pathways directly to the state.
Faculty teaching the courses on this list MUST include language in their syllabi or if using Canvas, in the “Course Information” module’s “Overview” section under “Course Learning Objectives or Outcomes.”
The Colorado Commission on Higher Education has approved *** **** for inclusion in the Guaranteed Transfer (GT) Pathways program in the GT-*** category. For transferring students, successful completion with a minimum C‒ grade guarantees transfer and application of credit in this GT Pathways category. For more information on the GT Pathways program, go to https://highered.colorado.gov/guaranteed-transfer-gt-pathways-general-education-curriculum-0.
