Step 3: Articulation Agreement Created
Once high school Dual Credit faculty have received the appropriate instructor and course approvals, the Dual Credit office creates an Articulation Agreement. This agreement is a legally binding contract between Portland Community College, Dual Credit Program, and the high school. The agreement states the responsibilities of all parties required to sign: high school instructor and administrator, PCC Dual Credit Coordinator, faculty liaison, Division Dean, Dean of Instruction, and the Vice President of Academic Affairs.
Newly approved Dual Credit High School Faculty will have a 1-Year Initial Articulation Agreement for the current school year. Courses that are on a 1-Year Initial Articulation Agreement must be assessed during that academic year in order for the agreement to move onto a 3-Year Renewal Articulation Agreement. Courses that are on a 3-Year Renewal Articulation Agreement must be assessed at least once during those three years.
