Articulation Agreements Explained
Articulation agreements are written documents that describe a set of courses earned toward a community college student’s associate’s degree that will simultaneously fulfill courses leading to a bachelor’s degree at Eastern Washington University. These agreements are made in collaboration with a community college and will ideally include a four-year academic plan for the student.
Articulation agreements are designed to help students that know what specific bachelor’s degree they want at EWU. However, community college students also have the option to complete a Washington Direct Transfer Agreement degree. This associate’s degree fulfills EWU’s General Education Core Requirements and proficiency requirements as well as grants automatic admission and junior standing into EWU. For more information on the Washington Direct Transfer Agreement refer to the ICRC Handbook
When to Create an Articulation Agreement?
Bachelor degree programs at EWU that require very specific courses prior to the third year should consider creating an articulation agreement if they do not already have a current articulation agreement.
