Articulation

Department Home

Articulation - n.
The act or the state of being jointed or interrelated.
Articulation is the process by which community college courses are granted credit at other colleges such as CSU / UC and private universities. Articulation is faculty and curriculum driven--specific to the community college, the receiving university, and the major—according to transfer course agreements. We cannot determine that a course will satisfy transfer requirements based on the title alone, all of which is subject to the universities conferring the degree. Successful articulation assures the college that the student has taken the appropriate courses, received the necessary instruction and preparation, and that similar outcomes can be supported.

The Articulation Office has final review of transferable courses, including IGETC and CSU GE-Breadth, and maintains LACC's official repository of equivalent and comparable courses from other accredited institutions (U.S. and foreign) as well as external exams such as AP, IB and CLEP. Namely, how such courses and exams garner credit for local graduation and towards baccalaureate granting institutions. Researching governing LACCD board rules, administrative regulations, California Educational Codes, CSU, UC, and private university transfer policies, the Articulation Office is a destination that provides resources and analysis to help faculty, students and staff clarify coursework credits towards their program of study. Your comments and criticisms are always welcome.


The Articulation Office makes no guarantees, either express or implied, with respect to information available over the Internet from other colleges or entities and is not responsible for any inaccuracies or misrepresentation of information related to LACC courses, prerequisites, programs of study, graduation requirements, and transfer admissions or requirements to baccalaureate granting institutions.
