Advanced Standing

Advanced Standing

The high school course or courses contain competencies that are recognized as equivalent to those in a technical college course. Students earn high school credit with potential to apply credit to a technical college.

Develop an Advanced Standing Articulation Agreement with Western

Review the curriculum for the Western course you would like to articulate below by clicking on the link. If a link is not provided, feel free to contact the instructor by the email or phone number provided.

After you review the curriculum and determine it matches closely with your curriculum, complete the High School Request for Articulation form and email or send it along with your curriculum directly to the Tech Prep Office by mid-February in order to be considered for the next academic school year.

Western instructors will review your information to determine whether or not the curriculum aligns. The high school will be notified that either an agreement will be developed or curriculum modifications are needed. Approval status will be communicated by the end of May.
