Colorado offers a state wide transfer agreement between it's two year public community colleges and four year public colleges. This means you could transfer all 60 credits earned in community college. There is also a stipend fund for in state students going to school in Colorado. This fund reduces the per credit dollar amount students pay. For the 2017 school year, the per credit stipend was $77. Students going to a private college are only eligible for 50% of the stipend.
