WHAT IS ARTICULATION? Articulation is the process of evaluating courses to determine whether coursework completed at the high school or ROP meets the requirements at a community college or post-secondary institution whether by course-to-course equivalency, credit-by-exam, advanced placement or dual enrollment.
WHAT IS AN ARTICULATION AGREEMENT? An articulation agreement is a formal, written and published document that describes which coursework from the “sending” institution (HS or ROP) is accepted as comparable to or in lieu of coursework at the “receiving” institution (community college/post-secondary institutions)
Old VS. New Process 2 + 2 Articulation CR only valid at MSJC towards a certificate or degree 12 unit residency requirement Student driven process Credit by Examination Articulation Transferrable credit NO residency requirement “Student-friendly” - Faculty and teacher driven process Student completes MSJC application – obtains a student ID# Student must maintain an A or B in the class and pass a comprehensive exam created by MSJC faculty
CREDIT-BY-EXAM Through the credit examination process, high school/ROP students may receive college credit for some articulated courses. Credit by exam means that a HS/ROP student has demonstrated proficiency in college-level studies by satisfactorily passing an exam approved by a discipline faculty member of the receiving college. The student will receive credit for the comparable community college course named in the articulation agreement.
