High School Partnerships

Articulation (also referred to as 2 + 2)

When the word "articulation" is used in education, it often has different meanings and connotations, depending on the setting.  Used in the transfer process from one school to another, articulation refers specifically to course articulation—that is, the process of developing a formal, written and published agreement that identifies courses (or sequences of courses) offered at a "sending" school that are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, specific course requirements at a "receiving" school.

Successful completion of an articulated course assures the student and the faculty that the student

  • has taken the appropriate course
  • received the necessary instruction and preparation
  • is assured of similar outcomes
  • is enabled to progress to the next level of instruction at the receiving school.
