Earn College Credit For High School Courses

Articulation is a process where you can earn college credits for specific CTE courses that you take in high school by matching the course requirements with an equivalent college course.

As a high school student, you may be taking CTE or ROP classes that have an articulation agreement with ARC.  This means that if you earn an A or B in the class, you earn credit not only from your high school, but college credit from ARC!

If you are interested in articulating high school classes to American River College, contact your high school counselor or teacher.
