Articulated Credit

Articulated credit is not recognized on a student’s college transcript until that student enrolls in a college that is authorized to confer the particular credit.  Colleges use various codes to identify ungraded credit. This non-grade transcripted credit is based on secondary teacher certification or college test-out procedures.

Transcripted Credit 

Transcripted Credit is recognized on a student’s college transcript upon successful completion of the college course.  The high school student is enrolled at the college at the time the student is taking the college course. 

Bilateral Articulation

  • 1-1 agreement between a high school or career center and a two-year or four-year college
  • Can be for academic or career tech courses
