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.
