Articulated Credit Program

Articulated Credit helps students start a college technical major while still in high school. In an Articulated Credit program, a student begins their course of study in high school and continues in a community college program that leads to a minimum of a two-year AAS college degree. Some technical courses may also apply toward a four-year degree.

How to claim your Articulated credit at ACC:

  1. After high school graduation, bring a copy of your high school transcript to Alvin Community College Advising or College and Career Pathways Office (A227) when you are ready to enroll. Students must file a petition for credit within 15 months of high school graduation.
  2. Students must declare a college technical major or an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) Degree to receive any of the Articulated Credit credits from high school.
  3. Students will need to complete a Petition for Credit Form with the College Pathways Specialist and the credit will be posted to your college transcript by the end of your first semester if approved.
