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 four-year colleges and universities, including the California State University, University of California, and private colleges and universities. Articulation is a process that is faculty and curriculum driven--specific to the community college, the receiving institution, and the major—with the receiving institutions making final determinations. 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 participates in the 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. The Articulation Office 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.
