Articulation Agreements

Articulation Agreements

What is an articulation agreement?

Articulation agreements are established to help transfer and continuing students make a smooth transition between colleges and programs without duplicating coursework. For example, a graduate of ACHS’s AAS program who wants to continue to take a Bachelor of Science degree at California Southern has a defined pathway to do so. 

ACHS articulation agreements contain academic opportunities for students transferring to ACHS or transferring from or continuing their ACHS education to articulated partner institutions.

ACHS has entered into articulation agreements with the following education partner:

ACHS is continually exploring new pathways for students to continue their education. Contact Admissions at for more information.

[1] This articulation agreement has been reviewed by the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission (OHECC) and has been designed to further the goals of 2012 HB 4059, specifically to increase the number of students who receive academic credit for prior learning, including academic credit that counts toward their major or earning their degree, certificate or credential, while ensuring that credit is awarded only for high quality course-level competencies.  

Note: California Southern University, a regionally accredited university based in California, USA and offering online programs throughout the USA, is not approved by OHECC as of August 2016. As such, provision of this information and articulation agreement should not be construed as a solicitation to enroll directed to Oregon residents by ACHS nor California Southern University nor be construed as approval by OHECC of California Southern University.
