Early College Credit

Articulation

Articulated courses allow high school students to receive college credit for classes they complete in high school. Students may elect to include credits earned through an articulated course on their college transcript. The articulation process eliminates the need for duplication of courses at the college level.

For more information on how to receive credit for Articulated Courses, click here: OCDE/CTEp/Articulation 

What is Articulation?
Articulation is the process of evaluating courses to determine whether coursework completed at a high school or ROCP meets the requirements at a community college or post-secondary institution.  Agreements made can include course-to-course equivalency for dual credit, credit by exam or advanced placement.


*** For information about the articulated courses available on your campus, please contact your students’ Counselor or the Pathway Specialist located in your High School Career Center. 

Dual Enrollment

OUSD students are encouraged to take the most rigorous and accelerated program in which they can be successful. Dual enrollment allows students to take college classes while still in high school. Classes are taught by college faculty, either at the college, high school, or through distance education. Dual enrollment is advantageous to students because it is a cost efficient way to accumulate credits and allows them to get a head start on their college careers. In some cases, the student may even be able to attain an Associate’s degree shortly before or after their high school graduation. Participation in dual enrollment may ease the transition from high school to college by giving students a sense of what college courses are like.

Policy and practices: All students interested in Dual Enrollment must meet with their high school counselor for advisement regarding the most appropriate plan of study for their goals as well as to receive instruction regarding forms and process prior to enrolling. Tuition is free to high school students; however, students are required to pay for their textbooks as well as a small health fee.
