What is articulation?
Articulation is the process of developing a formal written agreement that identifies courses (or sequences of courses) at a “sending” campus (i.e. San Diego Miramar College) that are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, specific course requirements at a “receiving” campus (e.g. UC, CSU or private university). Articulation agreements are designed to reduce the loss of credit or repetition of coursework from one institution to another, and assure that students have the proper instruction and academic preparation to be successful upon transfer to the university.
How does articulation help students?
Articulation is a formalized planning tool that helps clarify the transfer path to a student's preferred university. Each university and major has a different set of requirements, including specific courses students should complete prior to transfer. Many San Diego Miramar College courses have articulation agreements with various regionally accredited public and private universities, allowing students to develop a well-defined educational map/plan for entering and staying on the path to achieving their transfer and completion goals.
Where can I find articulation agreements?
The official repository for articulation agreements between California Community Colleges and California’s public universities can be found on www.ASSIST.org .
