Articulations

The Business & Entrepreneurship Department at HCC has developed a number of articulations with universities to allow students to make the transition of students to universities as seamless as possible. Articulation agreements are formal agreements between HCC and universities that aid students to transfer. They are subject to change on an annual basis. Without an articulation agreement, Associates in Applied Science students generally lose many credits that they have completed at community colleges when they transfer to universities after graduating. Of course to be able to transfer in an articulation agreement, students must meet of the university standards for admissions including any GPA standards. In general, students must graduate with at least a 2.0 and no credits will be allowed for any grade in a course of anything less than a C. Note also that an Associates of Applied Science degree by itself is not an articulation agreement with any university.

Most bachelors’ programs at universities are completed with 120-125 credit hours. Articulations are a great way for students to graduate with two years of credit or more from community colleges before transferring to universities. That can dramatically reduce the cost of tuition at universities. Review the current tuition cost at local universities.
