Articulation Agreements

Cal U partners with many educational institutions articulating how credits from an earned associate degree will transfer in towards one of our bachelor’s degree programs.  Below is a listing of current articulation agreements for associate degree holders in specific programs.  Please contact us for further information on any of these listed articulation agreements.

Don’t see your school or program on the list?  We may still accept their credits!  Please contact our office for an unofficial evaluation to see how your credits will transfer. 

Statewide Program to Program Articulation Agreements
