University College Announces Office of Alternative Credit and Articulation Agreements

University College is pleased to announce the launch of the Office of Alternative Credit and Articulation Agreements, formerly known as Dual Enrollment Programs. The office will continue to be responsible for coordinating all aspects of the College Credit Plus program and will assume the additional roles of overseeing and coordinating domestic articulation in support of student degree completion. In collaboration with academic departments, the office will coordinate other alternative credit opportunities at Kent State University, such as prior learning assessment, transfer credit, Credit When It’s Due, International Baccalaureate (IB), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Advanced Placement (AP) and Credit by Exam (CBE) to ensure appropriate course equivalencies are published and marketing of them occurs. 

The formalized process for articulation agreements begins with completion of the Certification of Curriculum Proposal form and articulation agreement template and concludes once the agreement has been reviewed, finalized and approved by all parties.

As director, Johanna Pionke will provide oversight for all programs and primary support for alternative credit initiatives and articulation agreements. A search is underway for a new assistant director who will assume oversight of the College Credit Plus program, working with Cara White, academic program officer. Julie Rayl, special assistant, will support all departmental programs.
