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 Assurance Guides (CTAGs) are statewide articulation agreements that guarantee the recognition of learning which occurs at public secondary career-technical institutions and the awarding of equivalent college credit specific toward technical courses/programs at public higher education institutions without unnecessary duplication of work or institutional barriers. The majority of our programs have available CTAGs.
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.
