Counseling and Advising Center - Course Articulation

Articulation is the process of evaluating courses to determine whether coursework completed at one college is equivalent to similar coursework at another college. Formal articulation agreements between colleges exist to take the guesswork out of determining course equivalency. For instance, the example below indicates that Chem. 1A at College of the Redwoods is equivalent to Chem. 109 at Humboldt State University.
