Articulated Credit

Articulated Credit is a college credit waiver granted through an agreement between the Career Tech Center (CTC) and specific colleges/universities. Students receive college credit based on classes completed and skills learned; credit generally does not transfer between colleges and universities.

Direct Credit

Direct credit is available in select programs. Participating students must enroll as college students at Muskegon Community College (MCC) and will cover the required MCC curriculum as part of their Tech Center class. Upon completion, they will receive a college transcript with credits earned. These credits are transferrable to most Michigan colleges and universities.

To qualify, students must have 90% or better attendance, a minimum GPA of 2.5, an up-to-date EDP, proof he or she plans to pursue that career path, and the recommendation of their teacher.
