ARTICULATION AGREEMENTS

Home > About Us > Articulation
An articulation agreement is an agreement between two schools that allows course credit a student earns at one school to be accepted or transferred and applied toward a degree or program the student pursues at another school. Articulation agreements do not guarantee that a student will be admitted to the partner school. However, once admitted, the agreement usually specifies how many credits and under what conditions, the student will be awarded for courses completed at the prior institution. The final decision for accepting credits rests with the receiving school, college or institution. In all cases, students should consult with academic counselors or advisors at both institutions to fully understand the terms of the agreement and how it applies to their own course of study.

The following is a list of current articulation agreements held by New York Film Academy with a summary of the key points of each agreement. You may click on each to download a copy of the actual agreement by clicking on the partner school.
