LFCC, American Public University sign articulation agreement

By Kim Walter -- kwalter@nvdaily.com

Lord Fairfax Community College signed an articulation agreement with American Public University on Tuesday, making it easier for students to transition to the four-year online school.

LFCC sent a release out Wednesday morning saying the agreement will provide its students with "more options for a smooth transition to a bachelor's degree."

APU serves over 119,000 students and offers "an online format that many current and potential [LFCC] students value," the release states.

LFCC already has articulation agreements with 48 colleges and universities in Virginia, West Virginia and D.C.

Articulation agreements are meant to simplify the transfer process for students from community colleges to four-year universities, as well as create a correlation of coursework between the involved schools.

APU, offering online education, has a corporate office in Charles Town, W.Va. and an administrative office in Manassas. The university offers 87 degree programs and 68 certificates.
