A few days ago I wrote a post about “College names and reputations” the main goal of this article was to point out all the things you should consider when choosing a post-secondary school. One of the words I’ve been hearing alot lately is articulation or articulation agreement..
An Articulation Agreement is a written agreement between one educational institution and another institution that lists courses and their equivelant at the other college. The purpose of this agreement is to help students easily transfer credits between educational systems; this is especially useful for transferring from a 2 year to a 4 year college.
Don’t assume any of your college credit is transferrable. If you plan to attend more than one college to complete your education you should check the college articulation agreements.
If you attended college in California, you can check public articulation agreements by visiting ASSIST (Articulation System Stimulating Inter-institutional Transfer)
Knowing which colleges have Articulation Agreements and which courses are being articulated can help you make important decisions about your educational future.
