Articulation and Related Information
Be sure to know not just if your course transfers, but more importantly know how it transfers! Does it meet a major requirement, general education requirement, or is it an elective?
What Is Articulation?
Articulation is the process that links two educational institutions to help students make a smooth transition from a community college such as SAC to a four-year college or university without experiencing a delay or duplication of coursework. Courses at the Community College are identified as equivalent to courses at the university. This allows students to fulfill a university requirement by taking an identified equivalent course (articulated course) at the Community College. This equivalency, or articulation, can be done course-to-course, for major requirements and/or for general education requirements. In some cases, courses are only articulated (identified) as elective courses. This means that though the units will transfer, the course does not fulfill any of the above listed requirements.
