Articulations are made based on
course hours AND
course learning outcomes.
I
t is assumed that in
order to cover the curriculum at the same level of detail required for articulation that the lecture/lab
hours will be sufficiently clos

. A 1.0 high school credit course may or may not be sufficient for an
articulation for a 5.0 credit college course based on the learning outcome content.
