Articulation Agreements

Scripps College has collaboratively developed transfer articulation agreements with a few California community colleges for the purpose of identifying courses or sequences of courses at these individual colleges that are comparable to or acceptable in lieu of specific courses toward meeting general education requirements or as elective credit at Scripps.
