Articulated College Credits

Articulation is a process that allows students to earn free college credit for skills and knowledge mastered in their Heartlands’ career and technical education programs completed during high school. Articulation recognizes outstanding academic performance, eliminates needless repetition of equivalent work, saves time and money, and promotes further education.

Each college or university has a different process. Make an appointment with the Student Services Coordinator to complete the process.

Requirements:

  • Complete a full year (2 semesters) of a Heartlands program with a B (3.0) or better GPA
  • Apply to the community college/college/university
  • Fill out the articulation application with the Student Services Coordinator
  • Send a final high school transcript to the college

 

Embedded High School Credits

Heartlands’ programs offer the opportunity for students to receive high school academic credit upon program completion. Students MUST be a program completer to earn these credits. A program completer is defined as a student who has completed all 12 segments of the curriculum AND earned a 2.0 (C) or higher GPA in the Heartlands program.
