Articulation Agreements

Students come to Huntington College of Health Sciences (HCHS) from a variety of academic backgrounds. Also, some HCHS graduates plan to continue with their education in other areas. For these reasons, HCHS has articulation agreements with other colleges and universities to help facilitate the transfer of college credits from one institution to another. Of course articulation agreements are not necessary in order for college credits to be accepted by HCHS, or in order for other institutions to accept HCHS credits, it just makes the process simpler.

Below is a listing of institutions with whom HCHS has articulation agreements, as well as a description of the types of programs offered at those institutions. Please keep in mind that, even with an articulation agreement, not all courses may be accepted for transfer to or from HCHS.
