How To Establish An Articulation Agreement

Hello High School Instructor/ROCP Teacher or Administrator,

If you are reading this letter you have decided to investigate the credit by articulation process between your high school and Pasadena City College. Although a Superintendent or Curriculum Coordinator must sign off on an articulation agreement, the work of establishing articulation is a faculty to faculty process. Articulation programs allow you to work with local community college faculty as partners, rather than as competitors. The forging of an articulation agreement is a joint process: both community college faculty and high school/ROCP teachers come together to develop a program that is at a level both parties can agree on.

At the end of the process, a high school/ROCP course has been confirmed to be as rigorous and challenging as one taught at a college, and to merit advanced placement and/or credit at that college. High school and ROCP students are more likely to enroll in and apply themselves to a secondary school program if they are also advancing themselves toward college and their career at the same time; likewise, more students will pursue an educational pathway in college if they have already made progress in it at secondary school. Thus, articulation agreements put you and community college faculty on the same team, and bolster programs across segments.
