Articulation Agreements
Students come to Huntington University of Health Sciences (HUHS) from a variety of academic backgrounds. Also, some HUHS graduates plan to continue with their education in other areas. For these reasons, HUHS has articulation agreements with other colleges and universities to help facilitate the transfer of college credits from one institution to another. Of course articulation agreements are not necessary in order for college credits to be accepted by HUHS, or in order for other institutions to accept HUHS credits, it just makes the process simpler.

Below is a listing of institutions with whom HUHS has articulation agreements, as well as a description of the types of programs offered at those institutions. Please keep in mind that, even with an articulation agreement, not all courses may be accepted for transfer to or from HUHS.
