Transfer Agreements - North Dakota

What is an Articulation Agreement?

An articulation agreement is an officially approved agreement between two or more institutions, which allows a student to apply credits earned in specific programs at one institution toward advanced standing, entry, or transfer into a specific program at the other institution. Articulation agreements are also called transfer agreements, transfer guides, or transfer pathways by various audiences.

Bismarck State College has articulation agreements with most colleges in North Dakota that make transferring as seamless as possible. In addition, students can complete four year degrees from some institutions on the BSC campus.
