Advanced Standing: Advance Standing Articulation Agreements (aka Tech Prep) award credit to High School students who participate in certain Career/Technical Education (CTE) courses. Central Lakes College (CLC) instructors have collaborated with participating high school instructors to identify course competencies that are common at both the high school and college levels. Advanced Standing courses are taught by high school instructors. College credit is obtained when the college receives the student’s certificate of completion and high school transcript for the high school Advanced Standing course. Advance Standing courses offer credit toward a Career and Technical Program at CLC. Students may earn a certificate of completion in CLC’s Career and Technical articulated courses by receiving a grade of “B” or better. Upon graduation from high school, students need to work with their high school instructor(s) and counselor for the procedure to obtain college credit. Currently, CLC has Advanced Standing Agreements with most high schools within the Central Lakes Consortium.
