Articulation Agreements

  • Hits: 1739
One of the main goals of the e-START grant is to increase the transfer rate to four-year institutions for students in STEM fields. By 2016, articulation agreements for students in STEM fields will be in place with at least four Texas institutions as well as with the National Institute for the Deaf and Gallaudet University, which serve primarily deaf and hard of hearing students.

This goal will be accomplished through the following activities:
  • Providing specialized advising for students interested in STEM fields so that the courses they select will be more consistent with the degree plans in four-year institutions
  • Strengthening student support during first two years of study
  • Sponsoring student STEM clubs
  • Developing 2+2 degree plans with four-year institutions that serve our student population

Activities:

2011-2012 Academic Year
  • Identification of institutions interested in forming articulation agreements
  • Review of current syllabi in chemistry, biology, and mathematics to provide consistency throughout the Howard campuses and congruence with syllabi at four-year institutions.
