You've heard about advanced placement classes, but did you know there are other ways to earn college units for high school classes? Through a special articulated course agreement, San Joaquin Delta College currently recognizes and awards college units for 20 Career and Technical Education courses offered throughout Lodi Unified School District.

Not going to Delta? It doesn't matter. Your Delta College units follow you. Seventeen of the approved courses transfer to California State Universities; two transfer to the University of California.

You DO NOT have to attend classes at Delta College to get your college transcript and credits. Upon successful completion of the approved high school course, you simply enroll in Delta College online, request an updated high school transcript that reflects your qualifying grade and then submit an application for “articulated college credit.” That's all you have to do. Once you're approved you will be entitled to a Delta College transcript bearing your newly earned college units.

If you do plan to attend Delta College, you'll not only earn college units while in high school, you also will be better prepared to pursue more advanced courses in your chosen field at one of the most academically prestigious career and technical education junior colleges in the nation. And, if your units post before your second semester as a senior, you'll get a highly coveted priority registration slot!

There is a list of school courses in the Lodi Unified School District Catalog, but an updated list may be viewed at the Lincoln Technical Academy website.

Free college units? Why wouldn't you do this?
