College Credit for High School classes

Students who pass a high school class that is "articulated" with a comparable college class are eligible for college credit.  

How does Articulation work?


An articulated course is one in which the high school teacher and the Mt. San Jacinto faculty have "formally agreed" that the high school course outline, syllabus, textbook, midterm and/or final exam are comparable to those in a course of the same major at Mt. San Jacinto College and that the final exam score will be used as a credit-by-exam for the comparable Mt. San Jacinto College course.
Students, who pass a high school class and the final exam that is "articulated" with a comparable college class, are eligible for college credit. To receive that credit, these rules must be followed:
Here are the rules:
·         The units cannot exceed nine (9) as applicable to a specific Certificate or Associate degree at graduation
·         The articulation units will be awarded to the high school student's MSJC transcript within one semester after the high school submits the necessary paperwork to the CTE, Special Programs Office
·         MSJC will not require high school articulation approved students to meet 12-unit residency requirement prior to posting these results.
·         Students must maintain an A or B in the class and pass the credit exam with an A or B will receive that letter grade on their MSJC Transcript (effective fall 2014).
