Articulation Agreements between High Schools, Community Colleges, and Universities.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
Designed to assist college officials in developing and revising articulation agreements, this report describes specific program articulation efforts between Illinois high schools, community colleges, and public and private universities. Data presented were drawn from a survey of 102 public and private community colleges, which resulted in 94 responses identifying 45 articulation agreements in place among responding institutions. Following an introductory discussion of articulation, the report reviews 11 articulation agreements, providing the names and addresses of contact persons. Among the programs described are: (1) a student handbook from Belleville Area College, providing high school vocational students with information on program requirements and appropriate courses in six programs; (2) an agreement between Richard J. Daley College, Triton College, and DePaul University to help minority and adult students achieve a baccalaureate degree; and (3) an agreement between Rend Lake College, area high schools, and Southern Illinois University at Carbondale to articulate curricula from grade nine through the baccalaureate level. Finally, the report examines the following features common to many of the articulation agreements described: transfer and articulation agreements as an institutional priority; delineation of admission, program, and other requirements; maintenance of agreements and obligations to inform students; diversity in program options and student services; and support for agreements through educational guarantees of transfer credit.
