“ It’s essential to do your homework early. The business of transferring can’t be a last minute decision.”
- Bart Grachan
Articulation Agreements between specific community colleges and specific four-year schools are designed to provide a smooth transition from one to the other. Also known as “college partnerships,” they specify which courses taken at the community college level will transfer to the four-year school. Some states have Articulation Agreements that require state-related universities to admit students with A.A. or A.S. degrees from state-approved community colleges. For more about Articulation Agreements, visit the American Association of Community Colleges.

Some offer A.A.S. degrees, which are career degrees for music students pursing vocational education in music production, music business, or popular music performance.”
