Articulation Agreements and 2+2 Agreements Policies and Processes
This webpage is for college and department faculty, administrators, and staff members working on articulation agreements and 2+2 agreements. Articulation Agreements are formal agreements or partnerships between two or more colleges and universities documenting the transfer policies for a specific academic program or degree. The agreement allows a student to apply credits earned in specific programs at one institution toward entry or transfer into a specific program at Kennesaw State University.
Articulation agreements document a pathway that provides a simplified, transfer process for transfer students. The partnership becomes a binding agreement between a two-year and four-year institution. The coordination of transferable coursework from a two-year (community or technical) college to a four-year college from an associate degree to a bachelor's degree helps students make a smooth transition from one institution to another by minimizing the duplication of coursework. The most important measurement of effectiveness of transferring from a two-year to a four-year college is the correlation of coursework between the two institutions.
2+2 Agreements are articulation agreements. However, they have an additional component beyond traditional articulation agreements. For a 2+2 agreements, the majority of the student's coursework will be taken at the two-year institution.
The process for articulation agreements and 2+2 agreements outlined here are at the academic program or degree level. The processes for 2+2 agreements outlined here are only for associates and bachelor's programs/degrees that the BOR has already approved the respective institution to offer.
