What is the approval process?
The Articulation Coordinator will receive and review a request for Articulation from
a District for completeness of submitted materials. The request will then be forwarded
to the appropriate department/discipline for review.
The department/discipline faculty will review the submitted materials and determine
if sufficient equivalency exists. If college faculty determine that the potential
for articulation exists, the college faculty will work with the high school teacher
to any recommend changes to the secondary curriculum that would allow articulation
Once approved by the college faculty, the Articulation Coordinator will prepare the
articulation agreement and distributes it for signatures. (If it is the first time a course is being articulated, the course must be approved
by the Curriculum Committee as eligible for “Credit by Exam”.)
Once all signatures have been collected, the college faculty will supply the secondary
school with the final exam/project. The agreement is valid for three years.
