Articulated Credit

A Real Success

Colleges and universities sign agreements with the district to grant college credit for high school courses that align to college level curriculum. These agreements recognize that skills and competencies are developed through successful completion of specific coursework. Articulated credit is awarded to students who achieve the competencies agreed to and matriculate to the partnering institution. Benefits of articulated credit can include savings on tuition, books and fees, saving time by avoiding duplicative coursework, and providing time in the schedule for expanded program content.
