Tech Prep Courses
A high school student graduating with one or more years in a technical program may receive advanced placement or advanced credit in a parallel college program at Clarendon College. Advanced placement or advanced credit at Clarendon College can be awarded based on any one or any combination of the following:
• A Tech Prep Articulation Agreement,
• Evaluation of the student's vocational program competency profile and a recommendation from the high school vocational instructor or the high school vocational director, and/or
• A Clarendon College departmental exam.
A student should apply within a period of one (1) year after high school graduation. A maximum of 12 semester hours of college credit can be awarded for courses, provided the student has not enrolled in the same course or in a higher level sequential course at Clarendon College or another college. The student will be allowed to apply for advanced placement or advanced credit only one time. Credits earned in this manner will not become a part of the student's permanent record until an equivalent number of semester hours have been earned in regular classes at Clarendon College.
Students desiring credit by this means and who expect to transfer to another institution are advised to check with the receiving institution concerning the transferability of credit obtained by this method.
