Articulation Agreements


Statement on Licensure

Some courses and/or programs may lead to professional licensure. However, states’ licensure requirements may vary, and it is unreasonable for Southern Utah University to track whether each course and/or program fulfills the educational requirements for every state. We recommend that students seeking licensure in another state research that state’s licensure requirements. The U.S. Department of Labor has provided this resourceful website: License Finder. If you would like help finding your state’s licensure requirements, please contact your Student Success Advisor or SUU’s state authorization coordinator.

Southwest Technical College

In addition to course-by-course articulation, Southern Utah University has developed several Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) in General Technology degree programs that are designed to support students transferring from Southwest Technical College (STECH). Students who complete an articulated 900+ clock hour certificate from Southwest Technical College (STECH) are eligible to earn a single block of 30 university credits to count toward a 63-69 credit A.A.S. in General Technology degree.

For an overview of the requirements associated with the AAS-GT degree type, see Undergraduate Degrees .

For details regarding specific STECH certificates that are part of these transfer articulation agreements, please see the following programs:

Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE)

The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education is a network of regionally accredited higher education institutions and offers various services for students within its borders, include the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE), the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP), and the Interstate Passport.

Interstate Passport

Southern Utah University participates in the Interstate Passport Network, a network of regionally accredited institutions that agree to transfer completed General Education requirements as a block in a seamless and efficient process among its members. Students who transfer into Southern Utah University with a Passport from another Network-member institution will not have to repeat or take additional courses to satisfy lower-division general education requirements. (Please note: Students who transfer with a Passport from a non-Utahn public institution may be required to complete an American Institutions course, as required by Utah statute.) Earning a Passport recognizes that a student has achieved learning outcomes in the following nine (9) knowledge and skill areas, which all Network member institutions agree are consistent with their own General Education learning outcomes:

  • Foundational Skills: oral communication, written communication, quantitative literacy;
  • Knowledge of Concepts: natural sciences, human cultures, creative expression, human society and the individual; and
  • Cross-cutting Skills: critical thinking and teamwork/value systems.
