Academic Affairs


(a) “Articulation agreement” is an agreement between academic institutions based on a thorough analysis of course content and requirements that stipulates which credits and courses may be transferred from one institution to another by a student seeking enrollment.


The Office of the Provost shall keep a record of all articulation agreements. This Office shall coordinate such agreements across the University. Knowledge of existing agreements is beneficial in the negotiation of new agreements and, where appropriate, assures consistency in format.

The Office of Enrollment Management shall be informed of all articulation agreements to effectuate recruitment of transfer students who attend participating schools.

All articulation agreements should be reviewed by the Associate Provost for Faculty and Administrative Affairs on a regular basis to assure that they remain current with University requirements and the course of study of each participating program. Discontinued programs should be deleted from agreements. As necessary, appropriate changes should be made in articulation agreements to facilitate ease of transfer of students to the University of Dayton.

Specific information regarding the articulation agreements may be obtained from the Associate Provost for Faculty and Administrative Affairs.
