Statewide Articulation Agreements

Statewide Articulation Agreements

Published: 3/8/2024 12:12 PM

​"Articulation" is a term used for ensuring that schools at secondary and post-secondary levels work together to assist students in progressing smoothly from secondary to postsecondary programs.  Defined as "a process for linking two or more educational systems within a community to help students make a smooth transition from one level to another without experiencing delays, duplication of courses, or loss of credit."​

To confirm completion of requirements to earn articulated credit, the secondary school must complete a CTE Articulated Credit Report. This is utilized to request articulated credit at institutions with agreements in place that are outside of KCTCS. For the KCTCS articulated credit request, complete the credit for prior learning request located on each agreements page where you need to attach the completed “CTE2KCTCS" form provided by your KCTCS locations registrar. Both versions of the form should be completed digitally.

Senate Bill 101 (2020) required the Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) to facilitate the implementation of a standardized articulation agreement for each approved​ high school career pathway to be honored at public colleges or universities. The Office of Career and Technical Education (OCTE), CPE, and post-secondary institutions develop Articulated Credit Agreements to benefit Kentucky pathway students. 

An introduction and overview on the opportunities for Kentucky high school graduates to earn post-secondary credit, a summary on recordkeeping responsibilities, and best practices for student support was​ presented during the CTE Leaders Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) September Meeting on Thursday, Sept. 14. Resources provided during this meeting are available at Articulation Agreements Update Session Material

​The ​Kentucky Community & Technical College System (KCTCS) has committed to a statewide articulation agreement. Please click on the link to the KCTCS High School Articulation Agreements website for more details.
