Articulated Credit Agreements

Waubonsee Community College, Joliet Junior College and Kishwaukee College award college credit when learning experiences at the high school level of instruction duplicate those at the college level. College credit enables students to receive advanced placement, save time and money, and avoid duplication of material learned in high school.  Students must earn an A or B in the class and apply for credit within two years after graduation.

Articulated credit is not the same as dual credit. For an overview of articulated credit vs dual credit click here and for information specific to dual credit contact Waubonsee Community College.

The following is a list of high schools/career centers where there are courses for which college credit can be earned.

The video below provides simple step-by-step instructions for claiming Articulated Credit.
