Preparation for Transfer


Articulation is the process of developing a formal (i.e., written) agreement for course transfer to colleges and universities throughout the state of California. It also can include out-of-state institutions as well. The Articulation Office is housed under the Office of Instructional Support Services at Southwestern College. The Office is responsible for the development and implementation of articulation agreements for the purpose of ensuring a smooth transfer process for students. Agreements can be accessed in the Counseling and Transfer Centers at the Chula Vista campus and the Higher Educational Centers in National City, Otay Mesa, and San Ysidro.
