What is Articulation?

For the purposes of this project, articulation is the result of working together to make things happen for our students. In its simplest form, articulation means that coursework taken by students in high school or ROCP is recognized by postsecondary institutions.  Ideally, it includes a seamless transition of course work where academic standards are designed, reviewed, and implemented to eliminate the duplication of skills and student learning outcomes. The primary goal is to avoid duplication of coursework required of students as they move through our educational system and to speed the completion of a certificate or degree from a postsecondary institution. This increases secondary retention, eliminates duplication, reduces the cost of education and increases the likelihood of attendance at the postsecondary level. Articulation is student-focused and is good for everyone.
