As new agreements are completed, they will be linked to this page. Check the agreement for your institution to determine eligibility.

What is a guaranteed admission agreement?

A Guaranteed Admission Agreement is an arrangement between a two-year institution (community college) and a four-year institution to provide a clear plan of transfer for academically successful students. These agreements are also known as 2+2 agreements, as it is intended that the student will complete two years at a community college and two years at a four-year institution, and earn a Bachelor's degree. Students who meet the qualifications for admission at Coppin State University and who adhere to the requirements of the agreement will essentially be "guaranteed" admission as a student with Junior standing.

What is an articulation agreement?

An Articulation Agreement is an officially approved agreement between two 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.

An Articulation Agreement can have several advantages for the student. It matches coursework between schools and so helps students make a smooth transition from one institution to another by minimizing duplication of coursework. If a community college has an Articulation Agreement with a four-year institution, the student will know that if he takes the appropriate courses at the community college then those courses will transfer for credit at the four year college.
