Some programs have Career Pathways articulations with Lake County high schools and/or articulations with the State College System in Florida. Articulations allow students to receive credit for courses that do not have exact matches at the articulating school, but which the accepting institution has agreed to accept as credit. All articulations have formal agreements with the articulating institution, which are on file in the Lake Tech Curriculum Office.
Statewide articulations between technical centers and state colleges articulating credits for selected programs were established in 2006. These statewide articulation agreements allow students to earn up to the maximum number of articulated credits based upon similar curriculum as determined by the accepting institution.
A special articulation between Lake Technical Center and Valencia College provides for graduates of the industrial programs (Applied Welding Technologies, Medium & Heavy Duty Truck and Bus Technician, Automotive Service Technology, Automotive Collision Repair and Refinishing, and Cosmetology) to receive between 24 – 27 credits towards their Industrial Management Degree.
Graduates of the Law Enforcement Officer program are eligible for up to 30 credit hours at St. Pete State College. Graduates of the Correctional Officer program are eligible for up to 12 hours at St. Pete College.
See program information in this catalog for individual agreements. Contact a counselor, career advisor or instructor for more information about these articulations.
