Roane State has articulation agreements with many universities designed to make your transition to the university of your choice as seamless as possible. An articulation agreement (sometimes called a transfer agreement) is a two-year plan of courses that helps you:
Of course, to be able to transfer (or articulate) you still must meet all of your university's GPA and entrance requirements.
Note also that an A.A. or A.S. degree is not in itself an articulation agreement with any university.
All Roane State courses transfer to regionally accredited institutions. Whether or not those courses fulfill actual degree requirements will be the decision of the receiving institution, provided an acceptable transferrable grade is achieved. Students and advisors can utilize these tables when an articulation agreement does not exist for a particular college or university. While every attempt is made to keep these tables current, the student should verify with their receiving institution advisor the transferability of a course prior to it being taken.
