High School Courses Could Earn You College Credit

courses that you can articulate those courses to Pellissippi State and
receive college credit? Articulation is a planned process that allows high
school students who have achieved an "A" or "B" in specific courses the
opportunity to receive postsecondary course credit for the competency-based
skills they have achieved at the high school level. Advanced standing will
be validated by Pellissippi State.
Here is what you need to do!
The OST program currently articulates the following courses if the above
criteria are met:

in the course at the 80 percent or above accuracy level.
