Articulation Agreements with High/Secondary Schools
Middlesex is a member of several area collaborative through which qualified students who attend the participating schools may plan their junior and senior years of high school as the first stage of a community college associate degree program. Students who apply to an articulated program at Middlesex must perform at an advanced level in their junior and senior years to receive college credit for some high school coursework. Among the MCC associate degree programs included in these agreements are: Computer and Telecommunications, Computer Applications, Business Administration, Computer Aided Design Technology, Health Careers, Early Childhood Education, Dental Assisting, Biotechnology Technician, Graphic Design, Hospitality Management, and Fashion Merchandising.
In accordance with the goals of Tech Prep and the federally legislated School-to-Work Opportunities Act of 1994, the college is committed to preparing individuals to qualify for skilled and rewarding occupations. This effort includes relationships with technical, vocational and comprehensive high schools that provide a smooth transition from high school to college.
