High School Articulation

Articulation from High School to Allan Hancock College

When the word "articulation" is used in education, it often has different meanings and connotations, depending on the setting.  Used in the transfer process from one school to another, articulation refers specifically to course articulation—that is, the process of developing a formal, written and published agreement that identifies courses (or sequences of courses) offered at a "sending" school that are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, specific course requirements at a "receiving" school.

Successful completion of an articulated course assures the student and the faculty that the student

  • has taken the appropriate course
  • received the necessary instruction and preparation
  • is assured of similar outcomes
  • is enabled to progress to the next level of instruction at the receiving school.

Do you know about Articulation?  

You can earn college credit for articulated high school courses. The courses listed on the partnership articulation page earn you college credit! Take the course in high school and earn an “A” or a “B”. Then come to Allan Hancock College within three years and take the next level course, earning a “C” or better. If you meet the conditions for the articulated credit, you must see an AHC counselor to complete a form and get the credit posted.

You earn college credit for both courses ! In some cases, you can earn credit for several classes.
