There are three opportunities for students to earn credits towards a college degree while a student at Minuteman. They include Articulation Agreements, Dual Enrollment and Advanced Placement courses.
Articulation Agreements are formal contracts between Minuteman and specific colleges to accept credit for certain vocational programs. Currently, Minuteman has Articulation Agreements with the following colleges:
- Central Maine Community College (Automotive, Culinary, DVC)
- Unity College (Environmental)
- Catherine Hinds Institute (Cosmetology)
- New England Carpenters Training Fund (Carpentry)
- University of Northwestern Ohio (Automotive, Plumbing/HVAC, Robotics)
- Mass Bay Community College (Automotive)
- Middlesex Community College (Biotechnology, Programming and Web Development)
- University of Massachusetts Amherst Stockbridge School of Agriculture (Horticulture and Plant Science, Environmental Science)
- All Massachusetts Community Colleges (Automotive, Culinary, DVC, Early Education and Teaching, Health Assisting, Hospitality)
Students have the opportunity to earn high school and college credits simultaneously. In order to be able to access these classes, students should speak with their guidance counselor about classes and the process. Minuteman is a dual enrollment site, meaning students taking classes at Minuteman can earn credit from Middlesex Community College. More information can be found here:
Advanced Placement (AP)
Students have the opportunity to take AP classes which prepare them for the AP exams in May. Students who score 3-5 may receive credit from the college they decide to attend. AP credits can be earned in academic and vocational areas.
The above options are available to Minuteman students who meet the prerequisite requirements.
