How do I know if my college course credits are transferable?

One of the first steps in understanding how college course credits are transferred is looking into articulation agreements, commonly known as transfer agreements, between different schools. Many schools openly advertise and share these agreements to help draw in students.

These agreements outline what courses and programs are easily transferred between partner schools. In fact, Academic Departments for the respective schools spend months outlining the partnership agreements to ensure course curriculum can easily transfer between the schools and/or programs.
