Articulation Agreements

Articulation agreements are designed to build strong relationships between two-year institutions and Columbia College Chicago. They identify how program or degree requirements met by a student at the partner institution will apply towards the related degree program at Columbia.

Articulation Agreements can be initiated from within Columbia College or by a potential partner institution. An external contact must initiate an agreement through the Office of the Registrar.
