Articulation Agreements

StudentWhat is an Articulation Agreement?
An Articulation Agreement is a formal agreement between two participating schools detailing the process by which credits and degrees at one institution may transfer or are equivalent to the other institution.

Levels of Articulation Agreements:
  • High School credits to College level
  • Professional Certification Program to College Level Degree
