Career Technical Education (CTE) Transitions

Skyline College CTE Transitions programs link high school and two years of community college study through a partnership with local high schools, and other industry partners. CTE Transitions programs pre pare students for success in high-skill, high-wage careers through curriculum that integrates academics with hands-on experience. CTE Transitions allows the granting of college credit for the articulated courses that are successfully completed by students while attending high school, or with other industry partners. College credit will be posted to a student’s transcript according to the criteria stipulated in the articulation agreement.

CTE Transitions articulation agreements have been approved by local high schools, and training partners in the following areas: Accounting, Automotive Technology, Business Computer Systems and Management, Business/Health Science, Residential Construction, Early Childhood Education and Environmental Science. Other approved articulation agreements exist at Cañada College and College of San Mateo.

Articulation agreements will be honored at any of the three Colleges in the San Mateo County Community College District. Students who earn CTE Transitions certificates for articulated high school, and other industry partners courses receive college credits. Earned credit will be granted and posted as credit-by-examination and entered into the student records system. The number of college units students may earn through these CTE Transition articulation agreements varies according to the specific career pathway.

CTE Transitions units are not applicable for meeting such unit load requirements as those for financial aid, veterans’ benefits, scholastic honors, or graduation residency requirements.
