Articulation Agreements

Articulation Agreements are formal agreements between organizations detailing the recognition of college credit between those organizations. Sinclair uses articulation agreements as a means to avoid duplication of resources and to encourage and enhance students' interest in post secondary education and transfer from one institution to another.
