Articulation agreements offer high school students the opportunity to earn college credit for particular career and technical courses taught at high schools.
In these arrangements, the college has agreed to grant credit to students after they complete a number of conditions.
These conditions typically include:
- Passing the designated course or series of courses at the high school with a set minimum grade.
- Completing specific skill assessments or projects with a minimum score level as identified in the articulation agreement.
- Graduating from the high school where the articulation agreement exists.
- Acceptance to Minneapolis College and acceptance to the program of study listed in the articulation agreement.
- Presenting a certificate to the College demonstrating completion of the conditions of the agreement.
Once the conditions are met, the college will grant the credit for the course or courses listed in the articulation agreement. The student must complete the program of study listed in the articulation agreement in order for the articulated course(s) to remain on the official transcript. Courses cannot be counted toward other programs of study.
