Articulation Agreements

What is an articulation agreement?

An articulation agreement between a high school and a community college allows high school students to receive community college credit for an approved high school class if the student receives a “C” grade or better. The community college classes also carry either CSU (California State University) or UC (University of California) transferable credit or both, depending on the class. High school articulation means that a student does not have to repeat the same content in the community college that they already studied in high school.  

What is the process to petition college credit for my High School Course?

Students must apply on-line to be a VCCCD student, and create an account in the CATEMA tracking database, with the help of a college representative. Their high school teacher will enter the student grade in the CATEMA database and recommend the student for credit.  The college faculty for the equivalent college class will approve the grade, and credit will be awarded by the Registrar’s Office.

High school students will receive the grade for the class that they obtained in high school, plus the note “CRE” (credit-by-exam) on their VCCCD transcript. The Ventura County Community College District transcript shows credit awarded through any one of the 3 sister colleges: Moorpark College, Oxnard College or Ventura College. High school articulated credit may only be petitioned during the final semester that the student is enrolled in the equivalent high school course; credit may not be petitioned after the semester finishes. VCCCD credit will be awarded in the spring for fall classes; and in the fall for spring, year-round and summer classes. High school students pay no fees for these articulated classes, as per VCCCD Board policy.
