Two courses are said to be "articulated" when the high school course has the same student learning outcomes, curriculum content and rigor of assessment as the college course. Course titles may differ between the high school college-level course and the articulated college course, but the course materials, content and instructional quality are consistent with (or "articulated" with) courses offered by the community college. Visit the online CCC Course Catalog for a complete listing of course descriptions and options available for articulation. College Course Outlines with important course information and Student Learning Outcomes are available for the course(s) you would like to pursue for alignment/articulation at the CCC Online Course Outline System as well.To be approved to articulate an ACC course, high school instructors must meet the same qualifications as a CCC instructor would. The minimum instructor qualification requirements can be found here. If you think you may have a course(s) in mind and can meet instructor qualifications, the ACC program may be the perfect fit. However, being an approved ACC instructor comes with some responsibilities. Please see the ACC Instructor Roles and Responsibilities Process for establishing new ACC articulations: In compliance with Oregon Dual Credit Standards, Clackamas Community College requires the following from high school teachers applying to grant college credit through the Advanced College Credit (ACC) Program: Signed copy of the ACC Articulation Checklist Course Information: A Syllabus including CCC's student learning outcomes for course taught and all items on the ACC Syllabus Checklist.
