High School Articulation
Articulation from High School to Allan Hancock College
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.

"Deciding to go back to school to learn English and obtain my GED has been one of the most important decisions I ever made. My credit ESL instructors guided and helped me to adjust to my new life as a student. They understood me as a student and as a person. Being a full-time worker, a full-time student, and a mother of three was not easy, but my instructors encouraged me to keep going. They spent time with me revising my writing and giving me feedback to improve my English, even after class time. They made me feel welcome and proud of being a student later in life. Now, I am a Hancock graduate with three AAs and am currently attending Cal Poly. I'm here because my instructors encouraged me to never give up. My ESL instructors believed in me even before I started believing in myself. It has been a long and not so easy road but I now know that I can reach all my goals."
