Articulation is the development and maintenance of clear transfer and graduation paths for American River College students. The Articulation Office is responsible for the development of formal course-to-course agreements between ARC and four-year colleges and universities. The articulation officer is also responsible for the annual development, maintenance, and publication of: ARC's Graduation and General Education Requirements; the California State University Breadth (CSU-GE) pattern; the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Certification (IGETC) pattern. This office also facilitates ARC's compliance with state mandates such as C-ID and the STAR Act (SB1440), and facilitates maintenance of ARC articulation with area High Schools and Regional Occupational Programs (ROPs). 

For those interested in development of high school/ROP articulation agreements, or with questions about credit earned based on a high school/ROP agreement, please contact Tiffany Mpagazi in Workforce Development at 1-916-484-4562.
