3.16.1 Articulated College Credit

Responsible Position

Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs


Articulated College Credit certificates must be presented to the ATCC Registrar’s Office once the student has been accepted to a major.

  • Life span of an Articulated College Credit Certificate:
    • Valid for five (5) years from the semester they are awarded. If the specific program requirements change/vary before certificate is presented at the college, it is at the discretion of the college if credit is awarded.
  • Articulated College Credits for courses that have been articulated between high schools and other Minnesota State institutions (where we do not have an agreement):
    • Program faculty (or designee) will determine whether to accept credits to meet degree requirement(s).
    • Credits will not be accepted to meet partial credit of a specific ATCC course.
  • Accepting Articulated College Credit Agreements between out-of-state high schools:
    • In the event a student requests ATCC to honor an articulated credit certificate from another state, the student is required to provide appropriate course documentation. Based on the documentation, the faculty will determine the appropriateness of any awarded credit.
  • Project Lead the Way (PLTW) credits:
    • PLTW credits may come in as transfer credits only on an official transcript.
