College Credit

Articulated Courses
Articulated courses offer high school students the opportunity to earn both college credit and high school graduation credit while meeting the requirement for introductory-level college courses.  The Articulation agreements define courses which are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, courses at the community college thereby allowing students to bypass said prerequisite course once enrolled.  These agreements assure students that specified Career Technical Education coursework completed in high school will transfer and can satisfy lower requirements at the transfer institution.
Students must earn an A or B to receive articulation credit.
Articulation for CCA courses is completed through either an automatic (CATEMA) or manual articulation process. Each community college has a unique process for obtaining a college transcript once an articulated course is completed. Please reference the “Obtaining College Credit” folder for additional instructions on how students obtain a community college transcript.

  • Saddleback College
  • Irvine Valley College
