What is articulated college credit? Articulated credit is college credit that is awarded once a student completes Terra State's articulated academic credit eligibility requirements . The amount of credit available for articulation is agreed upon by Terra State and the student's school/career center. Articulation agreements allow students to earn college credit for courses without taking them because students learn the information as part of their career tech or adult education program.
What is transcripted college credit? Transcripted credit is college credit that is automatically recorded on the student's transcript upon completion of a college course without a petition process. The amount of credit available for transcription is agreed upon by Terra State and the student's school/career center. Transcripted credit agreements allow students to take college courses while still in high school as part of a career technical program. Transcripted credit is usually listed as part of an articulation agreement.
Student Eligibility and Credit Awarding Requirements:
Articulated Academic Credit
- The student must have completed their Career Technical (CT) or Adult Education (AE) program with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
- The student must enroll at Terra State Community College within 2 calendar years after having graduated from their CT or AE program.
- The student must have completed an application for admission to Terra State; this includes submission of their official high school transcripts to Terra State.
- The student must schedule an appointment with a Terra State Admissions Advisor to petition for the articulated academic credit. During this appointment the student must provide evidence (passport, portfolio, certifications, licenses, competency profile etc.) that shows they have successfully completed their CT or AE program and all of the Terra State requirements. In some cases the student may also be required to take an examination.
- The student must complete the next higher level Terra State course in their degree pathway. The course needs to be taken after the student graduates from their CT or AE program.
- Articulated Academic Credit will be added to the student’s official transcript after completion of the next higher level course. A notation of “CR” will appear on the student’s college transcript next to those courses for which articulated credit has been accepted.
- In the event that a Terra State course taken as part of the student’s CT program during high school or AE program after high school was not a prerequisite for another Terra State course, articulated academic credit will be awarded upon the student’s completion of 3 semester credit hours at Terra State. The course taken to achieve the additional credit hours needs to be at the 1000 level or higher. The student must receive a “C” or better in the Terra State course. The additional credit hours need to be taken after the student graduates from their CT or AE program.
- All Articulated Academic Credit is granted at the discretion of the Dean of the content area.
Transcripted Academic Credit
- Students in a Career Technical (CT) program may enroll in Terra State course(s) concurrently while in their CT program at the discretion of the associated career center or high school and provided they have met Terra State course placement requirements. Not all CT programs are eligible to enroll in Terra State course(s) for Transcripted Academic Credit.
- CT Students will be subject to the policies and procedures of Terra State, when participating in Terra State courses or when present at Terra State facilities. Reference the Student Responsibilities form.
- Once the student has completed their CT program and their Terra State course(s) the student’s grades will be recorded on the student’s college transcript.
