The following definitions apply when used in context with Career and Technical high school and college programs:

Articulated or bi-lateral credit is credit earned in high school and awarded when the student is accepted at a college that has pre-approved the credit from high school. To be eligible for credit, the high school would have a pre-approved agreement with the receiving college. There is no cost to the student.

Career Technical Assurance Guides (CT2) is articulated credit that may be accepted by many colleges on a larger scale. Credit is awarded if the sending high school and the receiving college have successfully demonstrated to the Ohio Board of Higher Education that their course content for a particular course meets the state established guidelines. The courses are technical courses. There is no cost to the student. To see a full list of courses/schools that have been approved for CT2 credit, click here.

Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG) is credit for certain, pre-approved courses, and are transferred between colleges. These courses are sometimes offered to students in high school through dual enrollment. Click here for a list of TAG approved courses/colleges.

College Credit Plus: Students earn credit for high school and college at the same time. The high school and college have agreed that the course content meets the college expectations and the teacher is qualified to teach at the college level. The students will be awarded a transcript from the college and can access the transcript upon request. The student will need to contact the college they will be attending to determine if the transcripted credit is accepted. The student will want to talk to his/her high school teacher to determine if there is a cost for the credit.

Transcripted Credit is college credit that is on a college transcript. If a student has earned transcripted credit, the college will issue them a transcript upon request. To find out how to obtain a transcript, visit the college website that is issuing the credits and do a search for “transcript”.
