What are Articulation Agreements?

What is an articulation agreement and how can it benefit students interested in transferring?
An articulation agreement is an agreement that creates a clear transfer pathway from an associate degree to a bachelor degree students can use to plan the next move of your educational journey! Articulation agreements guarantee the transfer of specific courses to partner institutions and help minimize the duplication of coursework. Following an articulation agreement will you save time and money when you transfer!
