Articulation Agreements

Articulation agreements identify individual courses from transfer institutions that are comparable to, or "acceptable in lieu of" corresponding courses at Cal State Fullerton (CSUF). Successful completion of an articulated course assures that students will receive appropriate course credits after transferring to CSUF.
