Career and Technical Education Credit (CTE) (formerly Tech Prep) supports a partnership between Century College and Northeast Metro Career and Technical Center that provides high school students the opportunity to participate in programs that prepare them to advance into the postsecondary educational system and employment. By earning college credit in high school, students save time completing their degree or program and money on tuition and textbooks.
Career and Technical Education Credit taken in high school or through Northeast Metro Career and Technical Center substitute for a specific Century College course(s) identified through articulation agreements. Only those high school courses identified in the articulation agreements will be accepted as transfer to Century College and must be documented on a Northeast Metro Career and Technical Center transcript or high school transcript and a certificate of credit. Successful completion of designated courses where a grade of B or higher is earned transfer and may satisfy requirements or elective credits in some programs at Century College.

Each college or university decides which, if any, credits transfer and whether those credits meet their degree requirements. Some Career and Techincal Education Credit received at Century may not be accepted at another college or university.
