Steps for Establishing an Articulation Agreement
Below are the steps for establishing an articulation agreement between your program and a program at another institution:
- The Chair of the program discusses the possibility of articulation with the Chair
of your program.
2. If the FIT Chair recommends that we move forward, then please have him or her send the information about the proposed articulation to the Director of Admissions and to the Associate Vice President of Faculty and Academic Program Support and the Assistant Dean for Curriculum.
3. The Director of Admissions, and/or his or her designee, will reach out to you to further discuss any recruitment, admissions, etc. limitations or suggestions.
4. After you and the Director of Admissions concur that the should move forward, please let the Associate Vice President of Faculty and Academic Program Support and the Assistant Dean for Curriculum know so that they can prepare the standard articulation proposal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
5. The office of Faculty and Academic Program Support shares the information entered into the MOU, with the Vice President for Academic Affairs, and then send it to you, your chair and to the Director of Admissions.
6. If you all approve of the information stated in the MOU, the office of Faculty and Academic Program Support will forward it to the contact at the proposing institution.
7. Typically the Chair, Dean and President of the proposing institution discuss the articulation proposal and may have questions that need to be answered.
8. When particulars for the MOU are agreed upon, the proposing institution prints out and signs 2 copies of the MOU and sends it to the office of Faculty and Academic Program Support, which will obtain the Vice President of Academic Affairs, the appropriate Dean and department Chair's signatures.
9. Once signed, one copy of the agreement is sent to the President of the institution and the other original is delivered to FIT's Office of General Counsel.
