One of the unique benefits of attending Hancock County Technical Center (HCTC) is the opportunity to take advantage of our many post-secondary agreements with colleges to earn college credit while attending HCTC. An articulation agreement is an officially approved agreement that matches coursework between our school and Maine's community college and university systems and awards advanced placement credit. Through agreements with Maine's community colleges credit may be earned for identified courses taken at HCTC. Articulation and Enhanced Articulation Agreements are the same to a career and technical education student as earning credits through Advanced Placement exams are to an academic student. These agreements recognize skills and competencies developed through successful completion of specific trade coursework. There are benefits to pursuing articulation credit including savings on tuition, books and fees, saving time by not duplicating class work at the college level, as well as freeing time in your college schedule for expanded program content.

Many of our programs have agreements with local colleges that enable our students to earn college credit while attending their program at Hancock County Technical Center. Articulation agreements are different with each post-secondary school and often require students to earn a specified minimum grade and/or certifications that pertain to the college level coursework.

Articulation agreements allow students to capitalize on credits earned in their program when they attend the specific college that the agreement is with. Concurrent or Dual Enrollment allows our students to start their college transcript while being in their HCTC program and earn college credit that can be transferrable to any college they wish to attend depending on the requirements for the area they wish to study.
