Earn College Credit taking your courses in High School

Articulation of credit allows students to earn college credit in their high school CTE courses. An agreement is developed by the college and high school teachers if the skills and competencies acquired by students are the same and students will benefit as they continue in a related program of study.

These agreements are continuously updated. Check the current agreements and your high school for specific information.

High School Agreements

Genesee Shiawassee CTE programs will use the Career And Technical Education Management Application (CATEMA), the software system for student articulation credit recommendations beginning in 2012. Districts outside Region 15 should request copies of the Articulation Application form (sample pdf) to make recommendations for students who have acquired the skills and competencies necessary to earn the articulated credit.

Through articulation agreements Mott Community College may grant college credit for certain courses taken in high school. These agreements recognize that skills and competencies are developed through successful completion of specific coursework.

The high school instructor verifies that the student has achieved specific levels of competency.

Students must enroll at MCC in a related program of study and apply for articulated credit within two years of high school graduation. All MCC entrance academic standards must be met and maintained. A minimum of 15 credits of satisfactory work must be earned at MCC to be eligible for graduation with an associate degree or a certificate of achievement.

There are three major processes required for High School Articulated Credit:

  • Developing the Agreement
  • Earning the articulated credit
  • Utilizing the articulated credit at Mott Community College

There are many benefits of pursuing articulation credit:

  • savings on tuition, books and fees
  • save time without duplicating classwork
  • open time in your schedule for expanded program content
