Articulating a high school CTE class with a Rio Hondo College CTE course helps to foster a supportive and integrated relationship between faculty of secondary and post-secondary institutions. Collaboration increases course relevancy and enrollment, and serves as a “marketing tool” for college-bound students. High school courses benefit through shared access to training, equipment, staff and facilities at the college level.

Step 1: How to Articulate a Class:

  1. Create an Account on this site if you have not already done so.
  2. Please review course descriptions before you submit a CTE articulation requests to ensure the high school course closely approximates the college’s course in content, materials and evaluation methods. You can view all course descriptions on the Rio Hondo College Catalog.
  3. Once you have reviewed the course descriptions and selected a college course click on the REQUEST tab to download the course curriculum.
  4. If the course you want to articulate is not listed on the course curriculum download section, please contact the Career Pathways Specialists.
  5. Your request will be sent to the designated faculty for review. If materials are missing the college faculty will contact you.
  6. If the request is approved it will be sent to the Perkin’s manager box then to the active agreement box.
  7. CTE Articulation agreements will need to be renewed every academic year (during the spring semester), unless an earlier review is requested by faculty or if the signing teacher or faculty leave their positions.
  8. CTE articulation agreements are only approved when faculty to faculty review occurs.

Step 2: My Class Has Been Successfully Articulated… Now What?

  • You will receive an email notification that your request has been approved. In September, you will receive a packet with information regarding your agreement and information for students. Please inform your students, high school/ROP counselors and administrators. Make sure students are aware that this is a college-level course and they are eligible to earn credit upon its completion if they follow a few necessary steps.
  • Students frequently need assistance understanding the details of articulation and how they receive college credit. Students are required to apply to Rio Hondo College to obtain a student ID #, students should apply a month before they complete the high school/ROP class. The students need to complete two forms and submit them to the CTE Transitions Office no later than 6 months after completing the high school/ROP course. Students have to pass the high school course with a B or higher in order to request the credit by exam. (Except in Child Development courses, students must obtain an A or higher in order to request credit by exam).
  • Students must submit official transcripts after they submit the two forms.
  • In order to expedite the credit granting process for your students you can mail in a signed copy of the final grade roster of your class to the Career Pathways Specialists.
  • Career Pathways Specialists is available to assist with questions.
