                                 Articulation is a process which links a high school and college course in order to help students avoid
                                 experiencing a delay in or duplication of learning. It allows high school students to receive college credit
                                 and/or advanced placement for articulated classes taken in high school. By encouraging enrollment in both
  ARTICULATED                    high school and post-secondary education, articulation provides an incentive for students to continue their
                                 education, reduces costs to the student and minimizes needless duplication of coursework.
  COURSES
                                 An articulated high school course is a high school course that college faculty in the discipline has deter-
                                 mined to be comparable to a specific community college course. Students that obtain a B or higher and
                                 take and pass the final exam and/or project may apply to earn college credit. Articulation agreements are
                                 specific to teacher, please check with instructor to confirm articulation is in place.
