Articulation and Transfer

Articulation Agreements

Articulation Agreements are formal agreements between organizations detailing the recognition of college credit between those organizations. Sinclair uses articulation agreements as a means to avoid duplication of resources and to encourage and enhance students' interest in post secondary education and transfer from one institution to another.

Alternative Credit Projectâ„¢

Have you taken some college courses but haven’t earned a degree or certificate?  The Alternative Credit Project™ (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that Sinclair College will accept towards your degree (with some restrictions). A national program of the American Council on Education, supported by a generous grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the ACP is designed to help adults finish what they started—a two- or four-year degree, or a post-secondary certificate.
