ARTICULATION AGREEMENTS

Kean has worked with a host of community colleges to match coursework to help students make a smooth transition to Kean University. Our articulation agreements have several benefits to students.

These articulation agreements arrange for the acceptance of the entire Associate’s Degree without question.
