ARTICULATION AGREEMENT FOR

					                       ARTICULATION AGREEMENT FOR
                  TRANSFER OF ASSOCIATE DEGREE PROGRAMS
      IN INDUSTRIAL AND ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY TO DEGREE PROGRAMS
                       IN THE SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY


PURPOSE

The Connecticut Community-Technical College System and Central Connecticut State University hereby
establish the following agreement to expedite the transfer of students from the Associate Degree
Programs in Industrial Technology and in Engineering Technology at the Connecticut Community-
Technical Colleges to the Bachelor of Science Degree Programs in Industrial or Engineering Technology
at Central Connecticut State University. This agreement will provide the opportunity for Connecticut
Community-Technical College graduates of Industrial and Engineering Technology Programs to expand
their career options by continuing their study in Engineering Technology or Industrial Technology
Programs leading to a baccalaureate degree.

Each college agrees to provide a representative to administer the terms of this agreement pertaining to that
representative’s institution. This responsibility will include maintaining close communication with the
cooperating institutions to assure a full and timely exchange of information, the early resolution of
articulation difficulties, the organization of meetings and workshops as needed for the institutional
counterparts, the promotion of the agreement, cooperative recruitment, and any other activities which will
promote the agreement.

The School of Technology agrees to consult with Community-Technical Colleges on potential changes in
requirements well in advance of implementation. Adoption of changes, including modification to this
agreement, will include an appropriate time line for implementation. Students who take courses under
existing policies will be protected.

TRANSFERABILITY TO CCSU’S SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY

Having jointly undertaken and completed a comprehensive review and evaluation of each institution’s
curriculum, instructional methods, equipment, and facilities, we have concluded that the students
graduating from the technology programs at the Connecticut Community-Technical Colleges have the
technical skills and academic competencies necessary to enter CCSU’s School of Technology Programs.

CCSU will accept a minimum of 60 credits for individuals who have completed the associate degree at a
Connecticut Community-Technical College. Depending on the student’s technical specialization, those
credits would be applied to corresponding equivalent programs at CCSU as listed in Exhibit I. Students
whose specialization are not included in Exhibit I or who choose to move from their specialization at
CTC to one not directly equivalent, as listed, will transfer a minimum of 60 credits. Students should
consult with an adviser from CCSU’s School of Technology in order to maximize transfer credits into
industrial and engineering technology programs.

Students pursuing a major in the School of Technology have specific course requirements within some of
the areas and modes of general education. Students should consult the CCSU catalog or transfer
admission’s counselor at the Community-Technical College or at CCSU. For a summary of specific
course requirements for technology majors, within the University’s general education requirement, see
Exhibit II of this document.
