The text in black font is required in every GT Pathways instructor’s syllabus per State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education (SBCCOE) and Colorado Commission on Higher Education (CCHE).

Individual colleges may require additional information. Please contact your VPI/CAO for specific college requirements.
