Transfer articulation refers to a set of agreements between institutions that permit students to transfer from one institution to another. Articulation agreements are typically held between a community college and a four-year school. The goal of these agreements is to create a more seamless transfer experience for students. The agreements expand on guaranteed admission, transfer credits, scholarships and academic requirements.
Transfer articulation permits students to apply credits earned in certain programs at one institution to programs at a second institution. Apart from course-to-course program-based transfers, transfer agreements may also allow students to apply academic credits from their undergraduate degree to a post-graduate program at a different institution.
