Articulation Info for Partners
What is High School Articulation?
A high school course(s) that a college faculty member in the discipline have determined to be comparable to a specific community college course. At Mission College, we currently have 70 agreements across multiple majors. This is not a form of dual enrollment, though it is a form of early college credit often available to high school students. Articulation provides a streamlined path for students who complete a program of study in high school and wish to continue on their path at Mission College.
These articulation agreements create a sequence of progressive, non-duplicated educational courses leading to a certificate, and/or a degree in a wide range of fields and careers.
High Schools, Adult Schools, and ROPs

Articulation agreements, once formalized are effective for a two-year period.
