In education, articulation or more specifically course articulation, refers to the process of comparing the content of courses that are transferred between postsecondary institutions such as colleges or universities.
Course articulation should be differentiated from the process of acceptance by one institution of earned credit, from another institution, as applicable towards its degree requirements, i.e.
Course articulation may be done on an ad hoc basis when a student actually wishes to transfer or pursuant to existing course-to-course comparison data or more formal articulation agreements.

 Strategic Alliance: Articulation
Articulation refers to a partnership that smoothes the transition from high school to higher education, reduces redundancy in the curriculum or student learning, and, most importantly, helps students understand that high school is not necessarily an educational terminal point.
Vertical articulation is the focus here, where a process is created for coordinating and interrelating programs across different levels, for example, secondary, 11 and 12, to community college, 13 and 14, and then community college, 13 and 14, into university, 15 and 16.
When they extended articulation beyond the traditional course or discipline content by and across levels, they began to understand that learning considerations extended well beyond the “what” to the “how,” and that particular strategies, processes, and procedures could enhance or hinder teaching and learning across levels.

Therefore, it was suggested by both secondary and postsecondary career-technical education administrators to establish criteria for statewide articulation agreements that demonstrate what students know and are able to do.
