Career Pathways

Many students enroll in career technical education (CTE) during high school then transition to Citrus College to continue their studies. The sequence of courses that began in the high school/regional occupational (HS/ROP) setting and continue in college is often referred to as a Career Pathway or Program of Study.

The Career Pathway advances the student's acquisition of industry-recognized knowledge, skills and abilities and culminates in the earning of Certificate(s) of Achievement, degree, transfer and/or employment depending on the educational goal. Some Career Pathways include a CTE course that faculty at Citrus College will review upon request to determine if a HS/ROP course is comparable to the college course.  See Request HS Course Level Articulation Process, Part 1

When the high school instructor teaches a class that college faculty approved as comparable to an entry level college career technical education (CTE) course a HS Course-Level Articulation Agreement is put in place. Students are then informed and advised by their HS/ROP instructor who authorizes access to the Citrus College credit-by-examination opportunity. See Part 2: How to Request College Credit Held in Escrow.
