Transfer articulation agreements

Transfer articulation agreements are signed, formal agreements that provide concrete benefits to PCC students transferring to another institution, beyond what a student would receive under the standard transfer admission policies at that institution. For more information about articulation agreements and the difference between articulation agreements, MOUs, dual enrollment agreements, and transfer guides, please see the Academic Partnerships website.

Below is a list of valid* articulation agreements. Please contact Anne Haberkern, Dean of Teaching, Learning, and Curricular Innovation, with any questions.
