Key terms help you speak the language of administrative staff.
Every organization has its own special words and professionals in the college administrative offices are no different. Speaking their language moves you to the front of the line for services.
Accreditation – Articulation Agreement – Transfer
You may not be aware that there are regional accreditation groups that agree to accept each others’ coursework from 85% of colleges and universities. What if you took courses at other colleges? If you try to transfer them, even if it is a degree, you might lose out. See the list at www.chea.org to be sure. Transferring means you want another college to accept your other college credits. Articulation agreements can mean one school has agreed to accept coursework or other experience toward certain majors. For example, a public school district can have an agreement with a college to apply work taken at high school toward your college degree.
