Adams State University Passport Block

The Passport Block listed here is for general information only. Students must see the institution's website for access to its official block.

PASSPORT BLOCK OVERVIEW

The Interstate Passport block is intended to enable the seamless transfer of General Education requirements for students transferring into and out of Adams State University (ASU). Any student planning to graduate from ASU will still need to complete graduation requirements such as First Year Seminar, Writing Intensive courses*, E-portfolio and Capstone classes. 

Adams State students can earn a Passport in just 34 credits through on-campus courses, online courses, or a combination of both delivery modes to meet all general education requirements at ASU. Students must earn a minimum grade of "C" in all courses counted toward a Passport. In addition to degree-seeking college students, we encourage high school concurrent students to consider earning a Passport.
