COLLEGE CREDIT FOR
HIGH SCHOOL CLASSES

Let your high school career education credits work for you in college. You may be eligible to receive college credit for a career technical education (CTE) course that you took in high school if Orange Coast College has an “articulation agreement” with your school district or regional occupational program (ROP) for the class(es) you completed. Articulation credit can save you time and money – and get you into higher-level classes within your chosen career program more quickly.
