What is Articulation?

Articulation is the process of developing a formal, written agreement that identifies courses (or sequences of courses) from a "sending" campus that are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of specific course requirements at a "receiving" campus. The main purpose of articulation is to facilitate the successful transfer of students from a community college to a four-year institution.

Articulation Agreements

Articulation agreements identify courses completed at one institution that meet the requirements of another institution for major preparation, general education or elective units and may be presented as course-to-course, for lower division major preparation and/or for general education-breadth requirements.

Mission College maintains articulation agreements with every University of California campus and virtually every California State University campus, as well as with numerous independent (private) and/or out-of-state institutions.
