Articulation Agreement

What is Articulation?

Articulation is the evaluation of courses, or a set of courses, to determine whether the course(s) offered at one college (such as Clinton, Muscatine or Scott Community Colleges) will meet the course and degree requirements at another college (such as Iowa State, University of Iowa or University of Northern Iowa).

What are Articulation Agreements?

Articulation agreements are formal transfer agreements signed by Eastern Iowa Community Colleges and another college, explaining how courses you complete with us will be accepted at the other college. These agreements answer thee following types of questions and make it much easier for you to figure out what courses you should take while attending our colleges:

  • Will the course(s) fulfill a general education requirement there?

  • Will the course(s) satisfy a course requirement of a particular major there?

  • Will the completed associate’s degree fulfill all of the freshman and sophomore course requirements at the other college?

  • Perhaps our course does not have a comparable course at their college.  In this case the course may be articulated as elective credit only, meaning that the course does not fulfill any specific requirements at that college but will be accepted as college credit.
