• What is Articulation?

    The North Carolina HIgh School to Community College Articulation Agreement is an agreement between the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and the North Carolina Community College System. 

    The North Carolina High School to Community College Articulation Agreement provides a seamless process that joins secondary and postsecondary Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs of study. 

    This statewide articulation agreement comprises approximately 50 high school CTE  courses that match the knowledge and skills taught in similar community college courses. The articulation agreement ensures that if a student is proficient in his/her high school course, the student can receive college credit for that course at an North Carolina Community College. This streamlines the student's educational pathway by eliminating the need to take multiple courses with the same learning outcomes. 

    The Student

    • must score a grade of a B or higher in the course
    • must earn a scaled score of 93 on teh Career & Technical Education State Post-Assessment
    • must enroll at the community college within two years of graduation from high school
