As Ohio secondary and adult career-technical students transition to Ohio public institutions of higher education, Career-Technical Credit Transfer (CT)2 facilitates technical course guarantees and supports students to do the following:
- Take equivalent technical courses anywhere within the public educational system.
- Obtain technical credits (upon enrollment in higher education) without unnecessary duplication or institutional barriers.
- Attain their highest educational aspirations in the most efficient and effective manner as a result of clear and consistent standards.
(CT)2 is a collaborative effort among the Ohio Board of Regents, and the Office of Career Technical Education of the Ohio Department of Education, public secondary/adult career technical education institutions, and state-supported institutions of higher education. The articulation and transfer initiative established criteria, policies, and procedures whereby students are awarded college credit for agreed-upon technical knowledge and skills in equivalent courses/programs that are based on recognized industry standards.
(CT)2 helps more high school and adult career-technical students to go to college and enter with college credit; technical credit saves students money and time; and Ohio business and industry will benefit from more employees with higher education and advanced skills.
