Articulation is the planned process linking together two educational institutions to help students make a smooth transition—without experiencing a delay or duplication of coursework—from the community college to the four-year College or university. Porterville College has articulation agreements with a variety of institutions of higher education. Students planning to transfer from Porterville College to a UC or CSU campus can find articulation information online (go to www.assist.org ) or in person at the Counseling Center (AC 126). ASSIST (www.assist.org) is a database that contains information on lower-division major requirements and general education requirements and their equivalent at the Community College.
