High School Articulation Agreements

SUNY Morrisville partners with a number of high school and BOCES districts to offer articulation agreements in which high school students who have successfully completed a Career & Technical Education (CTE) program are eligible to earn college credits that are applicable toward an aligning associate or bachelor’s degree program at our institution. Articulation agreements allow students to build on past learning experiences while eliminating the unnecessary duplication of skills that have already been developed as a result of their participation in a CTE program throughout high school.

Benefits of an articulation agreement include the following:

  • Earn college credits as a high school student
  • Eliminate or greatly reduce the duplication of instruction
  • Advanced credit standing in a SUNY Morrisville degree program (may reduce the time needed for degree completion)
  • Save money on course tuition fees and textbooks
  • Improve career readiness skills

The credits are available at no cost to students who enroll full-time at SUNY Morrisville upon graduating from high school. To be eligible for articulation credits, students must meet certain criteria including grade point average and a positive CTE instructor recommendation. Other criteria, such as passing a skills assessment test, may apply depending on the degree program. View our active articulations agreements list to see which schools this applies to.
