Career and Technical Education Articulation Agreements

See how Career and Technical Education students can earn college credit during high school.

FCPS has a number of articulation agreements with colleges and universities for Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses. Articulation agreements allow high school students to earn college credit for coursework completed at the high school without tuition costs. By completing a course with a B or better, students have two years to apply for and receive college credit for their previous work. There is no tuition associated with articulated courses, and the college credit is specific to an institution.
