Articulation Agreements

Section 4.I – Articulation Agreements and Other Educational Partnerships

The College will work closely with associate and baccalaureate degree-granting institutions to develop and evaluate articulation agreements. Copies of these agreements will be filed in the administrative offices of the College.

The College will enter into partnerships with public and private schools and colleges to offer college-credit courses. The College will ensure that the courses offered are at the collegiate level and comply with North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) guidelines, will regularly evaluate the partnership, and will be responsible for the academic quality of the partnership.

Definitions used in this policy are as follows:

An articulation agreement is a legal document produced when two or more academic institutions follow a process leading to a partnership to provide a formalized pathway for student transfer. These agreements are designed to build strong partnerships and coordination between schools to aid in a smooth transition for students. By identifying comparable coursework, degree requirements can be met at one institution and transferred to another institution
