High School Course Articulation Agreements
These certificates are presented to high school juniors and seniors who have successfully met the requirements of a college course while attending high school. High school and college instructors meet and review their curriculum every two years to determine which college course requirements could be completed through an existing high school class or classes. Once the appropriate college course is identified, high school principals and college presidents sign an "Articulation Agreement" that indicates they understand and will follow guidelines set forth in the formal contract.
