Career Tech Center
Students, you can earn FREE college credit from Baker College, Muskegon Community College and others for the skills you develop at the Career Tech Center. The process, known as ARTICULATION, allows you to receive college credit and get a head start on a variety of Associate Degree/Certificate programs.
Tuition isn't cheap. When you receive articulated credits you pay nothing, however, you will be required to pay the regular entrance fee with your college admissions application.
Check with your high school instructor or counselor to see if your courses are eligible for articulated credit. Not only will you save money, but you will also get a head start on college as well as gain opportunities for advanced study.
Students can also earn "Direct Credit" through the college when enrolled in specific CTC courses. With Direct Credit, CTC students are able to earn both college and high school credit at the same time. Student are enrolled in a specific college course for which they can earn credit if they meet the college grading requirements along with the CTC course. These credits are at no cost to the student.
Students who are interested in earning "Direct Credit" should inquire at the CTC for more information.
