Articulated Credit

Opportunities for students to earn articulated credit began with the Tech Prep program. The Tech Prep program was a sequence of study beginning in high school and continuing through at least two years of postsecondary occupational education. Tech Prep integrates academic and occupational subjects, placing heavy emphasis on articulation from secondary to postsecondary education. Articulation between high schools and two-year colleges embodies a competency-based, technical curriculum which teaches essential competencies without duplication or repetition.

Articulated credit courses are taught at the local school district and may allow students to receive free college credit at NCMC when they enroll in an Associate of Applied Science degree program.
