Career & Technical Education Credit

Career and Technical Education Credit (CTE) (known as articulated credits) are academic credits in CTE degree programs that provide high school students the opportunity to complete a postsecondary degree in a technical career pathway program. Students can take CTE college courses while in high school though articulation agreements.

Articulation agreements are an early credit strategy designed to support student transitions from secondary to post-secondary programs and direct entry into the workforce. Century College collaborates with area high schools by offering articulated course in a variety of Career and Technical Education programs. By earning college credit in high school, students save time completing their degree or program and money on tuition and textbooks.

Please note: only those high school courses identified in the articulation agreements will be accepted as transfer to Century College and must be documented. Successful completion of designated courses where a grade of A, B or C (depending on the specific course and articulation agreement) is earned, transfer of the course may satisfy requirements or elective credits in some programs at Century College. Articulated college credit certificates are generated via the site. Students will need to log into their account to print their certificate(s). View a certificate example here.

Procedures and Requirements

To receive CTE credit at Century College students must:

  • Note: high school courses that have an articulation agreement with Century College will be accepted as transfer to Century College and must be documented. Check with your high school instructor or the Century College DARS office to be sure the course is articulated at the college at which you intend to enroll. 
  • Complete the course while in high school.
  • Earn a course grade of A, B, or C in each articulated course.
  • Apply for admission and enroll in courses at Century College within three years of completing the high school graduation.

Transfer CTE Credit from Century College

Students awarded college credits at Century College for CTE credit who intend to transfer from Century College to another college or university should contact the Transfer Specialist at that college/university to determine if their CTE credit will be accepted.
