Articulation Agreements

Articulation Agreements

An articulation agreement is an officially approved agreement that matches coursework between schools/institutions. These are designed to help students make a smooth transition when transferring with a CXC CAPE qualification to a degree-granting institution.

CXC has been working with institutions which attract Caribbean students to establish articulation agreements. Below are schools with which CXC has agreements:

Some schools do not do articulation agreements, but have published CAPE equivalency charts to show their credits for CAPE courses. Some of the schools which have published CAPE equivalency charts are listed below:

What universities say about CAPE

“We recognize the quality and rigor of the curriculum, and we are delighted to ensure that the outstanding students from the Caribbean receive full credit for their hard work when they enroll at Western Illinois University.”
Dr Martin Abraham, Provost and Academic Vice President of Western Illinois University.


“With this agreement we also recognise and appreciate the Caribbean Examinations Council for its exceptional quality and credentials. I say all of this to characterise the importance of this articulation agreement to improve transferability of coursework to Midwestern State University and thereby better serve all of our students.”
Dr James Johnston, Interim President of Midwestern State University.


We feel that students who have achieved strong results in their CAPE Units 1 and 2 examinations are well prepared for entry to McGill University, for advanced standing credits and exemptions towards our degree programmes and for successful studies with us.”
Katherine Mayhew, Senior Admissions Officer, McGill University.


“If you are taking CAPE Unit 2 level exams and score Grades I and II on any of the following subjects, and you are admitted to AU and join our global community, you will receive advanced standing AND credits for UA level classes….We at AU value CAPE and the education that you have received at home…”
Evelyn Levinson, Director of International Admissions at American University.

“SUNY Plattsburgh has been awarding transfer credit for successful completion of CAPE for several years. Students with satisfactory CAPE results enter with advanced standing which enables them to complete their bachelor’s degrees in three (3) years. The content of the CAPE examination appears to be comparable in content and intensity to introductory-level courses in various disciplines within our course offerings.”
