Metropolitan Community College - Kansas City
Adv. Standing Articulated Credit
Steps for Transferring Articulation Credits
- High school counselors, teachers and MCC representatives inform students about articulation and discuss benefits and process.
- The student enrolls in an articulated program or course.
- By January of the first semester of the student's senior year, the secondary school submits the names and addresses of the
students enrolled in each articulated program or course to the MCC Career & Technical Education office.
- In May, the secondary school notifies the Career & Technical Education Office which students have completed the articulated
program or course successfully according to the agreement requirements.
- Students who complete the articulated program or course successfully are admitted to MCC. Each student's file is open for
two years after the date of high school graduation. The student must enroll at MCC within two years of high school graduation
or two years after ending documented employment in the same technical field as the secondary level program to take advantage
of advanced standing articulated credit.
- At high school graduation, a letter of congratulations and instructions to obtain advanced standing articulated credit at
MCC is mailed to the student.
- To enroll at MCC, the student:
- Selects and, if possible, visits the MCC college of their choice;
- Requests that an official transcript from their high school be mailed to the Student Data Center (3200 Broadway, KCMO, 64111);
- Schedules a meeting with an adviser or counselor;
- If the articulated program in which the student was enrolled requires the approval of a portfolio to obtain advanced standing
credit, the student arranges to meet with the appropriate program coordinator for portfolio review.
- Once the student has completed the required number of courses per the articulation agreement, the courses are "transcripted"
or added to their MCC transcript by the college Registrar.
