Articulation Agreements

Articulation Agreements are arrangements between institutions that agree in advance, via Memorandum of Understanding to accept each other’s credits in the transfer of specific ministry credentials. In these cases, dually enrolled students take cross-listed courses at either institution. Each institution teaches its own curriculum and courses and accepts transfer credits from the other institution.
