What is an Articulation Agreement

An articulation agreement is a formal agreement that facilitates the mobility of students who have previously attended a community college to a four-year institution. The purpose is to create a smooth transition for students who want to leverage their associates degree to complete their baccalaureate degree in less time. Articulation agreements help ensure that, when possible, students do not have to duplicate coursework that they have previously completed. This agreement will continue to support cooperative marketing, guaranteed admissions into online programs pending met requirements of admissions, and priority admission points for on-campus programs and clear advising guides.

The result is a simplified process that allows you to build on your previous work and get further along your path as a health care professional. The goal of this articulation agreement is to better serve the educational growth of students and the economic development of the community through cooperative educational planning and optimal utilization of other post-secondary resources.
