IN-2 High School Completion Course Articulation

In This Section

IN-2 High School Completion Course Articulation

Purpose 
To ensure that students are not penalized by the differences in specific requirements imposed by individual districts/campuses within the general guidelines of the Washington State High School Diploma. To provide a pathway for acceptance of credit between Washington State high schools and Green River College and to limit the need for duplication of credits previously earned.

Scope
High School Completion Students

Definitions 
It is important to provide a pathway for the acceptance of credit between the Washington State high schools and the community college for high school completion credit.

Policy and/or Procedure
If a student transfers an individual course (from a Washington State high school or community and technical college) that meets a specific state high school requirement category at the sending institution, that course is considered to have met that requirement at Green River College, even if this course does not have an exact equivalent.

It is the student’s responsibility to initiate the articulation process and to gather appropriate documentation from the high school as needed.

This is in accordance with OSPI guidelines for acceptance of credit and Washington State High School Diploma requirements.
