Articulation Agreements

An articulation agreement is a document developed to outline the course requirements for a specific educational credential at each institution.  The articulation agreement provides a clear path for transfer students to understand exactly which courses to take to ensure that courses will transfer and apply toward the Ivy Tech and IUPUI credential.   Articulation agreements are designed so that students can make better course choices in order to complete their degrees without the cost of excess credits.  Students should consult with their Ivy Tech and IUPUI academic advisors and the Passport Office regarding their appropriate path toward the bachelor's degree at IUPUI.  If a student is intending to transfer to IUPUI before completing a degree or certificate, then the student should consult with Ivy Tech and IUPUI academic advisors about degree-applicable course choices at Ivy Tech.  Most articulation agreements have an expiration date as outlined in the agreement. 

Successful completion of the Ivy Tech degree does not guarantee admission to the IUPUI degree program. Students are responsible for reviewing the admission requirements for the IUPUI degree program. In some cases, a separate application is required to enter the program.

There are three options for an Ivy Tech credential to transfer to IUPUI:

The Indiana Statewide Transfer General Education Core

The Indiana Statewide Transfer General Education Core (STGEC) is a framework of general education competencies and learning outcomes outlined and agreed upon by academic representatives of the Indiana state public institutions of higher education. These competencies represent commonalities among the general education programs at the various institutions and campuses. By design, the STGEC framework maximizes the transferability of a general education “package” from one state institution (or campus) to another while allowing each institution to determine and maintain its own distinctive general education curriculum for its graduates. It enables a student who satisfactorily completes an approved program of general education in any one of those institutions to transfer that coursework to any other Indiana public institution as a block of 30 credit hours towards meeting general education core requirements.   http://www.in.gov/che/files/STGEC_FAQs_6.25.13.pdf

Articulation Agreement (2+2)

An articulation agreement (also called a 2+2 program) is outline of course requirements at Ivy Tech and IUPUI.  This agreement is specific to Ivy Tech and IUPUI. View Articulation Agreements  

Transfer Single Articulation Pathway (TSAP)

The Transfer Single Articulation Pathway (TSAP) was developed so that Ivy Tech students could complete a specific set of courses in specified degree areas and be assured that those courses would transfer into a 4 year degree at any Indiana public university. The TSAP is similar to the 2+2 agreement in that the student will enter the bachelor's degree granting institution at junior status and the TSAP associate's degree is accepted by the bachelor's degree granting institution as a block of credit.  Successful completion of the Ivy Tech degree does not guarantee admission to the IUPUI degree program. Students are responsible for reviewing the admission requirements for the IUPUI degree program. In some cases, a separate application is required to enter the program.  View TSAPS
