Minnesota Articulated Credit
Minnesota Articulated College Credit courses allow students the chance to earn FREE college credits to many state two-year community and technical colleges. If you take these classes as a junior or senior and earn an A or B, you will not have to pay for the number of credits granted through the articulation agreement. This is just like getting a scholarship without having to apply or earning advanced placement credit without having to take the AP test. Since you won’t have to take some of the introductory courses, it will also save you time in college. Tech prep courses are offered in Business Education, Health Science, FACS, and Technology Education and will help you prepare for the set of skills needed for success in different career.
Once you complete a class that is articulated, you will get an articulation certificate in the mail. If you decide to attend a college that has agreed to accept articulated credits, bring that certificate to the college at the time of admission. A complete list of participating colleges and the number of credits you will earn will be shared with students by the teacher at the beginning of the articulated class. Articulated classes include Accounting, Sales and Marketing, Intro to Business, Web Page Design, Computer Skills and Applications, Child Development, Pro Start, Certified Nursing Assistant, Cabinetmaking, Construction, Manufacturing, Power Mechanics, Voc Auto and PLTW: IED, POE, EDD, DE, CIM, CEA.
