It’s easier than ever for community college graduates to continue their education. The Bridge to Bachelor’s Degree program paves the way for Trinidad State Junior College students to seamlessly continue on at Adams State University.

New, first-time students attending any Colorado Community College System school are guaranteed admission upon completion of an associate degree through the collaboration between CCCS and Adams State.

Adams State Executive Director of Enrollment Management Karla Hardesty is pleased with the possibilities for working students. “We are really excited to be a part of the Bridge to Bachelor’s Degree program. It will open more pathways to a bachelor’s degree at Adams State and creates more opportunities for working students who want to continue their education beyond their community college experience.”

It’s easy for students in the Colorado Community College System to transfer credits. They will also receive personalized student advising and guidance with Adams State’s admission counselors, as well as access to qualifying institutional scholarship opportunities, and a no-hassle transfer process.

CCCS colleges include Trinidad State Junior College, Arapahoe Community College, Community College of Aurora, Community College of Denver, Colorado Northwestern Community College, Front Range Community College, Lamar Community College, Morgan Community College, Northeastern Junior College, Otero Junior College, Pikes Peak Community College, Red Rocks Community College and Pueblo Community College.

The Bridge to Bachelor’s Degree program is made possible through collaborative agreements between CCCS and select Colorado four-year universities.
