Cost Free College Credit Options at Penta Career Center

Penta Career Center Offers Three Types of Cost Free College Credit Opportunities:

Articulated Credit is credit earned in high school and awarded when the student is accepted at a college that has pre-approved the credit from high school. To be eligible for credit, the high school would have a pre-approved agreement with the receiving college. This is directed at one specific college that has the agreement with the program and is not usually transferrable because no grade is attached. This allows a student to have advanced standing at the college. There is no cost to the student. 

Career Technical Credit Transfer (CT2) is articulated credit that may be accepted by many colleges on a larger scale. Credit is awarded if the sending high school and the receiving college have successfully demonstrated that their course content for a particular course meets the state established guidelines. The courses are technical courses. For example, CAD and Culinary Arts, to name a few, are eligible for CT2 credit. There is no cost to the student. 

College Credit Plus (Dual Enrollment): Students earn credit for high school and college at the same time. The high school and college have agreed that the course content meets the college expectations and the teacher is qualified to teach at the college level. The students will be awarded a transcript from the college and can access the transcript upon request. The student will need to contact the college he/she will be attending to determine if the transcript credit is accepted. Currently, College Credit Plus courses are offered at no cost to Penta Career Center students.

*Transcript Credit is college credit that is on a college transcript. If a student has earned transcript credit, the college will issue a transcript upon request. To find out how to obtain a transcript, visit the college website that is issuing the credits and do a search for “transcript”. 

Disclaimer: Colleges reserve the right to alter agreements based on curriculum revision or upgrades.

All credit awarded is based on student performance.
