What is an Articulation Agreement?
An articulation agreement is an approved agreement that is formed through formal agreements between educational institutions. During articulation, representatives from each institution conduct meetings among faculty and staff to consider similarities in course work, curricula, syllabi, textbooks and competency profiles to ensure seamless transfer of credits to the partner institution. Their consensus is then formalized in a written agreement which is used by students and advisors and is regularly updated according to a mutual schedule. The agreement outlines specific courses and letter grades completed at one institution that will transfer to another institution. In addition, it may call for enrollment in the institution for at least one semester as a full time student.
