Articulation Agreements

An articulation agreement is a written contract or a partnership between educational institutions that allows course credit earned at one institution (the ‘sending college’) to be transferred and applied toward a specific degree program at another institution (the ‘receiving college’).

Umbrella partnerships are specific articulation agreements where multiple or all programs offered at the sending college are transferred into their equivalent at the receiving college. Articulation agreements importantly specify the courses remaining to earn the baccalaureate degree and also outline the timeframe for degree completion.

Using articulation agreements for transfer planning

There are three things to pay particular attention to when you look at an articulation agreement:

  1. the admission requirements outline any special requirements for admission to the program (e.g., minimum GPA, audition or portfolio);
  2. the upper division requirements list the specific courses you will need to take at the 4-year college to complete your degree; and, if applicable,
  3. the program maps provide a guide to course sequencing and the courses you need to take each semester at the senior college.
