College Tech Prep / Articulation Agreement?

  • What is College Tech Prep?

    All of Jackson's Career and Technical programs have converted to College Tech Prep programs. These programs offer articulated college credits.  These are actual college credits and vary by program.  See the Stark County Tech Prep Consortium website for more information:

    What is an Articulation Agreement?

    Articulated Credit is a unique opportunity for students to jump-start their college career in high school.  An articulation agreement is a written, formal document that specifies the process by which a high school student may earn college credit through successful completion of certain high school courses where students achieve learning outcomes, skills, and abilities comparable to those covered in a college course.  The process allows high school students to move smoothly into post secondary education without experiencing delay or duplication of courses.  Generally, the college credit is not awarded until the student is enrolled at the college issuing the articulation agreement and until the student has satisfactorily completed a designated number of credit hours or terms.  Because the courses involved are at the high school level, the student pays no tuition.
