Credit Options

A major benefit of being a partner with the Miami Valley Tech Prep Consortium and Sinclair Community College is the opportunity for Tech Prep students to earn college credit at no cost to them. There are 3 types of Sinclair Tech Prep Credit:

MVTPC Articulated Credit

Based on a bi-lateral agreement between a secondary partner and Sinclair, students may earn these Pass/Fail credits by completing the curriculum, skill and, if applicable, receiving a certification or credential.  Credits are processed by the MVTPC Office at the culmination of a student’s high school experience and, with the student’s permission, posted to their Sinclair transcript as ‘AA’ (Articulated Credit). These credits do not affect a student’s Sinclair GPA and may not transfer to other post-secondary institutions. We encourage students to check with the college/university they intend to transfer to for details.

MVTPC Proficiency Credit

Based on a bi-lateral agreement between a secondary partner and Sinclair, students may earn these letter grade credits by demonstrating proficiency in a Sinclair Course taught by their Career Tech high school instructor through assessment(s) agreed upon by Sinclair Faculty.  Credits are processed by the MVTPC Office at the culmination of a student’s high school experience and, with the student’s permission, posted to their Sinclair transcript with a letter grade and # sign. These credits do affect a student’s Sinclair GPA and may not transfer to other post-secondary institutions. We encourage students to check with the college/university they intend to transfer to for details. 

CTAG

Career Technical Assurance Guide (CTAG) is a post-secondary credit type structured by the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) for high school students participating in career technical education that offer CTAG aligned courses. Credits are earned by completion of assessments and other requirements specific to the course. The process for obtaining this credit at receiving institutions is dictated by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and ODHE. Course credit will only be posted for those courses with curricular matches at Sinclair. The Credit Option documents linked below reference CTAG courses for which Sinclair has matches at the time of its creation, but it is encouraged that you review the State Reporting System for a more up to date list.
