Articulation refers to the process of developing a formal, written and published agreement that identifies courses (or sequences of courses) on a "sending" campus that are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, specific course requirements at a "receiving" campus. Faculty evaluation determines whether coursework completed at one institution will meet requirements for admission, transfer credit, general education or major preparation at another institution.
Successful completion of an articulated course assures the student and the faculty that the student has taken the appropriate course, received the necessary instruction and preparation, and that similar outcomes can be assured, enabling progression to the next level of instruction at the receiving institution. This process is done to help transfer students make a smooth transition (typically from the community college to a university/college) without experiencing a delay or duplication of coursework.
As always meet with a counselor to confirm that transfer courses you plan to complete are aligned with the most up-to-date agreements. To make an appointment with a counselor, please call (408)741-2009.
