College Credit

College Credit

Students who graduate from Ohio career tech high school programs can receive credit for college courses that duplicate the experience the student had in high school.  


Articulated Credit

Articulated credit is not recognized on a student’s college transcript until that student enrolls in a college that is authorized to confer the particular credit.  Colleges use various codes to identify ungraded credit. This non-grade transcripted credit is based on secondary teacher certification or college test-out procedures.


Transcripted Credit 

Transcripted Credit is recognized on a student’s college transcript upon successful completion of the college course.  The high school student is enrolled at the college at the time the student is taking the college course.
