Articulated College Credit

The walking bridge at Century College in the summer.

Articulation college credit agreements are an early college strategy that enables high school students to earn college credit. Students who earn college credit while still in high school save money and can speed up or accelerate the time it takes to earn college certificates and degrees. Century College collaborates with several area high schools and districts to align career pathway programs with select high school and college courses in career and technical education programs, so students are eligible to earn early college credit.

If your CTE class in high school has an articulation agreement with Century College, you may have the opportunity to earn this college credit. Click here to find out if your high school has an active articulation agreement with a Century College career and technical program.

Successful completion of courses with an agreement may meet college program requirements or count as elective credit. Articulated college credit certificates are generated via the site. Students will need to log into their accounts to print their certificate(s). View a certificate example here. Once you print your Articulated College Credit (ACC) certificate, you can email an electronic copy of your certificate to the Century College Transfer Student Services office.
