Articulation agreements exist with many area high schools and career and technology centers for the purpose of granting recognition for the achievement of learning comparable to college level. 


Students:  Students should check with their high school or career and technology center to see if any articulation agreements are in place. If so, students who satisfactorily complete articulated high school coursework should contact the Admissions Office or the Office of Records and Registration for more information.

  • Alignment of high school or career and technology center programs or courses with BC3 course requirements
  • National certifications such as NOCTI, ICE, EPA, A+, Network +, etc.
