Transfer Articulation

Transfer Articulation

So what does that mean to you? In practical terms, it means that you can take your first two years at a community college, earning an Associate's degree. If you have followed an articulation agreement, then those hours will transfer seamlessly to ETSU. You will enter your major as a junior without loss of credits and with no courses to duplicate at ETSU. You will be well on your way toward earning that Bachelor's degree. We feel that articulation is linked to recruitment, retention, student satisfaction and graduation rates. Students and parents like to have educational plans and assurances that classes will transfer. Articulation is the simplest way to do that. Please feel free to contact us at or by phone at (423) 439-4723.

This web site is designed for you - the student, community college partners, articulation officers, faculty, advisors, administrators - anyone concerned about articulation.
