Articulated Credit for High School Career Technical Education Students

What is an articulation agreement?

An articulation between a high school and a community college is an agreement that allows high school students to receive community college credit for an approved high school CTE class if the student meets the agreed-upon criteria for successful completion. The process helps students make a smooth transition from a secondary to a post-secondary program without any duplication of coursework thus helping streamline their educational plan. The basic philosophy of articulation is that no student should be required to repeat the same course content for which they have already received credit. The CTE high school teacher can provide additional information on how to petition for credit for the class. 

What is the process to petition college credit for my High School Course?  

Criteria for Student to Receive VCCCD Credit for equivalent High School/ROP Course:

Students must complete “Petition for Credit by Examination- High School Career and Technical Education (CTE)” form, apply on-line to be a VCCCD student, and create an account in the CATEMA database. A high school student seeking credit by examination will receive non-letter grade credit “CRE” (credit) on their Ventura County Community College District (VCCCD) transcript when the agreed articulated class requirements are successfully completed. High school articulated credit may only be petitioned at the time that the student is enrolled in the equivalent high school course; credit may not be petitioned retroactively. VCCCD credit will be awarded the same college semester as the petition for one semester classes or the subsequent college semester for year-long classes. Fees and tuition are subject to current Board of Trustees and VCCCD policy

Please note: The 4-year colleges and universities may not accept courses taken as Credit by Examination (CRE) for the fulfillment of major requirements or elective credit. High school students planning to transfer to a 4-year college or university may need a letter grade (e.g. A, B, C). Therefore this transfer student may have to take the articulated course at the college for a letter grade. In addition, we highly recommend that the student consult with the intended transfer institution to verify if they will accept (CRE) grade to receive credit.
