Articulation Agreements

St. Ambrose University is dedicated to creating partnerships with Community Colleges. An articulation agreement is a formal agreement that matches coursework between schools and helps students make a smooth transition from the community college to St. Ambrose University.

Students who complete an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree have met most of our general education requirements. Please consult the transfer planning guides when selecting your coursework at your community college.

Reverse Transfer

Sometimes it is in a student's best interest to transfer to SAU and complete the requirements for AA or AS degree while taking classes here. Students may "reverse transfer" their credit hours and earn their degree from the community college after they have started here.
