The Articulation Agreement
The First 2 Years of a 4-year Degree
An ARTICULATION AGREEMENT is an understanding between two academic institutions that a course offered at one institution will be accepted for transfer credit at the partnering institution. Articulation agreements help students take appropriate courses at the community/junior college that will transfer for credit toward a bachelor’s degree at the university of their choice. Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning and the Mississippi Community College Board have a statewide articulation agreement which governs the transfer of credits between Mississippi community/junior colleges and Mississippi public universities.
Students may take freshman and sophomore level transferable academic courses while at the community/junior college. Generally, one-half of the hours required for a bachelor’s degree may be transferred from a community college and applied to that degree at a four-year college or university.
