The purpose of an articulation agreement between a community college and a university is to provide graduates with further opportunities for study even after they have finished a diploma program. It would be no surprise then, that Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) has been tirelessly working with universities in Nova Scotia to work more of their diploma programs into the beginnings of a degree. The benefit to NSCC is that they can increase the appeal of their programs by attracting students who might have been considering going to university first, and instead allowing them to get many of the first two years of courses at a fraction of the price. The universities benefit from increased enrollment in their undergraduate programs. However, I would argue that largest benefactor of these agreements is certainly the students themselves.
