Through local and state articulation agreements, qualified students may be able to transfer or “articulate” high school Career – Technical Education (CTE) credits to Cleveland Community College through the Articulated Credit program. This creates a systematic and seamless process in which students can move from high school to community college without having to duplicate efforts or repeat coursework.
To earn articulated credit:
- A student must earn a final grade of B or higher in the course.
- Have a 93 scaled score on the standardized CTE post-assessment test for courses on the state articulation agreement. A scaled score of 90 is required for courses on the local articulation agreement.
- The High School Career Development Counselor or designee must submit and Articulated Credit Approval form to CCC’s Student Services for processing; OR the student must submit an official secondary transcript. The student’s official high school transcript must include the CTE post-assessment scores.
- Student must receive an industry recognized credential from an approved certification organization. (NCCER, Microsoft, etc. agreed upon by the College)
Students are encouraged to consult their high school Career Development Coordinator to verify courses that are included in the Articulated Credit agreement.
